Clubs for disabled children

Access All Areas

We run regular, free clubs for disabled children and their families as part of our Access All Areas project.

Free Super Sunday & Holiday Clubs

Our Super Sunday and Holiday clubs are taking on a new look for 2018.  We’re focusing on six artistic themes which will be repeated throughout the year. Children with any disability will be welcome at all our clubs, except for three sessions which will be for children with autism only. All sessions will start with a short family quest to get you inspired before you get stuck in! Our clubs will continue to be run by experienced Enablers, who will make sure that the activities are accessible to all.

The whole family is welcome and our clubs are not only great fun, but also an opportunity to meet other families, chat and share experiences. The clubs last two hours starting at 10am and involve a mix of play, art activities and gallery exploration.

Oh, and did we mention that they’re FREE!

Club activities

  • Stop Motion: One for budding film makers! Using our iPads or your own iPhone if you prefer, we’ll be making simple animations inspired by the Eureka! galleries. 
  • Clay Play: Time to get messy! Learn a variety of basic clay techniques to create your own masterpiece. Aprons provided but suggest you wear clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty 😉
  • Treasure Box: Create a personalised keepsake to tell your family story. The treasure box might reflect where you live, your likes and dislikes, memories. We’ll provide materials, but your treasure box will be made extra special if you bring in things from home e.g.broken jewellery, keys, photographs.
  • Sculpture: Making sculptures from junk materials with a focus on ‘upcycling’ our trash, creating a masterpiece for you to take home.
  • Print-making: Design your own printing block and print onto paper. Then you can frame your masterpiece, use it as the backdrop for a noticeboard or cover your favourite book with it – it’s up to you!
  • Tie-Dye: Create a crazy patterned t-shirt or tote bag – or bring in something from home to dye. Apron’s and gloves provided but wear loose clothing that you don’t mind getting stained.
