Step into the shoes of an artist and enter our Grayson Perry inspired pop-up family space, ‘My Pretty Little Art Studio’. Adventure on an in-gallery kids’ art trail, spotting riddles and patterns in Grayson’s work, and take this new inspiration back into the artist’s Studio.

• Join paper-plane decorating workshops
• Get creative at the ‘design-your-own-pot’ station
• See your patterns projected onto real pots in a digital re-creation of Grayson Perry’s London studio

Budding artists and their carers can enjoy ‘My Pretty Little Art Studio’ all summer school holidays and on weekends throughout the exhibition (10 December – 1 May). Children under twelve get free entry into the exhibition.
