WHAT’S ON | LITTLE ART FORMS – Creative workshops for children + families

Posted: 1st April 2016

We want to bring you the best in exciting events for you and your little ones to attend. From the capital to the countryside, we’ll try our very best to dig out fun workshops, events, activities and fun exhibitions for families to experience and enjoy.

Our first focus is on Little Art Forms and we’re thankful to have their founder, Grace Thompson, joining us to tell you more…

Hi I’m Grace, Mother, Artist, Art Therapist and founder of Little Art Forms. We strongly believe in the resiliency of children and the fact that access to all forms of creativity encourages the development of a child’s imagination, spontaneity and sense of their own identity.


Little Art Forms provide a range of creative workshops, sessions and events for babies, children and families in several venues across London. We always endeavor to bring an engaging, thoughtful and playful experience to our happenings, which have included bookmaking, monoprinting and collage.

We value art making and play in benefiting children and adults of all ages and therefore believe that if children ‘learn through play’ then adults ‘play through art’. By bringing people together, in creative gatherings, this can provide families with ways to make connections with other like-minded families and have the opportunity to nurture their creativity.


With this in mind we would like to invite you to join us on Sunday 10th April at our Family Art Making Workshop at ROKEBY gallery in Clerkenwell, London. 10:00am-12noon.


In this workshop families will have the chance to explore and make their ‘mark’ on the physical space of the gallery through sculpture, collage and drawing. Navigating three separate art making sections, children and carers will transition between the ‘familiar’ and the ‘unfamiliar’, discovering and making connections along the way.

As they weave through the gallery space, participants will be invited to creatively respond and react to one another’s art making throughout the workshop. Each area has been created with all ages and abilities in mind, with themes intended to facilitate a sense of belonging and identification.

Spaces are very limited – for further information and to book tickets for the above workshop please see our website for more details.


We are big fans of ABACUS at Little Art Forms and we look forward to visiting ABACUS HQ soon. I hope you have enjoyed reading a little bit about what we do and a big thank you to Faye at ABACUS for having us!

Catch you soon!
