Make your own family carnival float in our new Sunday Spot Play Space sessions!
Artist Natalie Zervou-Kerruish has designed six movable structures which families are invited to transform into their own unique carnival floats.
Use bells, balls, sticks, paper, foil, ribbon and tape to build and decorate your float in a way that symbolises your family or community.
The session will end in a procession, with families leading their floats through the studio and out into the Orozco Garden!
Sessions are self-directed and open to all, but designed for children aged 0-5 years old. The space is supported by the SLG’s Art and Play team.
Please book one ticket per family group of under six people; for family groups of more than six, please book two tickets. We welcome families in every form.
This is a FREE session but please inform us in case of cancellation, as each session is limited to 5 family tickets for covid-safety.

Natalie Zervou-Kerruish is an artist and researcher interested in the wordless language of sculpture and movement. Both these are fundamental in the artists on-going sculptural enquiry into the corporeal and connective qualities inherent in ready-to-hand materials. Theatrical, tactile and playful, her work is conscious of the impact the human body has in relation to sculpture and space. When collaborating with others, she is interested in the exchange, the transitional and all things partial. Recent research stems from the symbols and philosophies connected to her Greek heritage, alienation and voicelessness.
