Turner Contemporary has collaborated with the artist duo Leap Then Look to fill the Clore Learning Studio with sculptural artworks designed for play, alongside the children’s art library of over 400 books and regular workshop programme.

Everything in the space is made to be interactive in some way and you are encouraged to spend time to test ideas and explore, to look in different ways, create sculptures, take photographs, move things around, stack, link, play, and add your contribution to the changing space.

Leap Then Look is a partnership between artists Lucy Cran and Bill Leslie creating participatory artworks, projects and events for a wide range of people, which explore the possibilities of play, collaboration and material exploration in cross-disciplinary art practice.
