For Early Years


Through working in partnership with three local children’s centres and with support from The Margate Early Learning community and Save The Children, these bi-monthly workshops offer a variety of bespoke sensory and creative activities for all families to enjoy.  

The sessions are advertised through the local children’s centres, making sure we reach a wide range of local families and encouraging new audiences into the gallery who would never have engaged with the gallery or the arts prior to attending a Turnip session. The success of the first few sessions has attracted a diverse group of local families to engage with the arts and learn new simple skills to carry on at home with the free craft bags handed out at the end.

Turnips and Turnip Tasters sessions are free and take place bi-monthly:

  • Turnips is a ticketed workshop taking place in the Foyle Rooms where snacks, drinks and goodie bags are provided. To book Turnips, the Eventbrite ticket will open 2 weeks prior to the workshop.
  • Turnip Taster is a drop-in workshop taking place in our Clore Learning Studio and is less formatted.
