Calling young people to our programme of after school, weekend and summer school workshops and courses. Our programme supports you in developing your skills and knowledge, from practical workshops led by our team of creatives, to expert-led seminars exploring art history and study skills. We also welcome young volunteers, young people looking for work experience, and those completing their skills and volunteering sections for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

The twins had a brilliant time exploring the house and learning about the art of tile painting. They can’t wait to see their finished designs and are now both keen to enrol in other upcoming creative opportunities for teens at Leighton House such as the embroidery and mindful drawing. Many thanks again for offering such interesting workshops for those in their mid teens. It’s often an age group which in general is under catered for by other entities.

We are currently devising plans for an after school club, to be co-designed by the young people who attend, so get in touch if you would like to be part of the planning group.  We focus on the visual arts, music,  drama, as well as exploring careers in the creative industries. We also organise workshops to help develop confidence with public speaking and interviewing.  Co-design the programme with us!
