The Wild Escape: Craft Workshop

Join us in The Atkinson’s Art Box for an arts and crafts workshop suitable for all the family.

The Wild Escape is a major new project led by Art Fund uniting hundreds of museums with schools and families in a celebration of UK wildlife and creativity. Find your favourite animal on display in The Atkinson and create an artwork imagining its journey to a natural habitat.

The pictures and stories children create will be brought together in a collective work of art that imagines a better future for the wildlife on our doorstep, launched online and in venues across the UK on Earth Day, Sat 22 Apr 2023.

There’s something for all ages, with all materials supplied and all for free!

Drop-in any time between 11am – 3pm and get creative:
Tuesday 04 April
Thursday 06 April
Tuesday 11 April
Thursday 13 April

Children under 12 must be supervised by an adult. First come first served. You may be expected to wait until a space at a craft table becomes available.

The Wild Escape is led by Art Fund alongside hundreds of museums, artists and environmentalists, in partnership with WWF, the RSPB, National Trust and English Heritage. The Wild Escape is made possible thanks to funding from Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grants, with additional support from Kusuma Trust, Foyle Foundation and a group of generous individuals and trusts. The Wild Escape is inspired by Wild Isles, a landmark BBC series exploring the flora and fauna of the UK.
