Based on our ethos of providing accessible, child-centred, artist-led quality experiences, we have honed our ideas to create ‘Carousel Kits’ a series of downloadable resources for families filled with open-ended creative ideas to recreate within the home environment. The ‘Carousel Kits’ will make our collaborative work accessible to parents, carers and Early Years Professionals, supporting them to be the artist at home and encouraging creative exploration to happen beyond each session.
For a time limited period, download your Carousel Kits for FREE here. Just click on the links below…
