Craftsmanship and beautiful objects are all around us at Harewood. Craft is a huge part of our history and our future. These craft-focused sessions are all about giving children and young people a taste for making and the satisfaction of making something well, with skill and imagination.

Working with professional artist Beatrice Knowles pupils will investigate the Biennial craft exhibition alongside the permanent Harewood collection exploring surface pattern through textiles, furniture, craft and nature. 

By sketching, looking and group conversation pupils will gather and share different ideas and develop them using printmaking. Pupils will create a surface pattern onto fabric or paper, based on a theme or message in response to what they have seen.

This is a hands-on practical session for pupils to be inspired, learn new skills and enjoy a process of making which can be developed back in school.

All materials are included but feel free to bring your own sketchbook.

Our indoor Curiosity Cabin, Education Suite and outdoor sheltered picnic area are available for lunch/break sessions which are situated next to toilet facilities and our Adventure Play Area. Our site is accessible.
