SENsory is a series of workshops throughout the year specifically aimed at working with those who have Special Education Needs.

Working with a professional artist, with a learning disabilities background, and a fully qualified SEN teacher, we aim to combine art, science and experiments in project based workshops. All workshops are adapted to the SENsory needs of the individuals

We aim to keep the workshop size small, with a maximum of 9 children to ensure everyone gets the support they need. The studio itself does include a staircase to access. Parents are encouraged to take part and join in the creative mess, or sit and have a cup of tea with other parents in a supportive group. Of course if you need to leave your child with us you can do that too!

To book any of our workshops please book online via eventbrite.  Alternatively, please call or email: 07792 033 156 or enquiries@artyfartyretreat.co.uk
