Our popular school workshops are suitable for Key Stages 1 - 4.

We specialise in a cross-disciplinary approach to stimulate reflection and interaction, in order to achieve a critical perspective as well as a wider understanding of key issues. 

Our current clients include the BBC, Newcastle City Council, LookwideUK, the National Trust and Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums.

We cover most historical periods and a wide range of themes, from cooking to combat, through the eyes of the rulers and the ruled.

Sessions can be Period or Theme specific, but they will always be tailored to your needs and include handling collections that can actually be handled.

Our sessions are fun and hands-on, and add an extra spark to effective and efficient learning.

We are also trained to deliver and assess Arts Award on all levels - http://www.artsaward.org.uk
