WheelWorks Workshops


What We Do:

WheelWorks can add value to events of all shapes and sizes — from a youth club open day to the Lord Mayor’s Show! — with a range of fun and educational arts and technology activities for ages 4 – 25.  

Our Workshops are themed around one or more traditional or digital art forms.

They can focus:

— on a particular social issue which the participant group would like to explore

— on primarily educational purposes

— on having fun

— on all of the above!

WheelWorks Workshops usually last around 2 – 3 hours on one particular day and can take place either on our mobile arts studio the ArtCart, at your school, youth club or event venue.
