A small child raises her hands to the air to touch lots of pieces of coloured tissue paper above her. Behind other children are playing. To the right of the picture going out of the shot a woman is crouching down and smiling.

Sunday Spot is an open-access programme of hands-on activities for families which takes place every Sunday afternoon.

The programme consists of two strands: monthly artist-led workshops for 3-12 year-olds and a regular artist-designed space that supports self-directed play to include younger children.


On the last Sunday of every month from 2-4pm, our artist-led Sunday Spot workshops offer free, creative activities for children and families. Currently taking place online, workshops are playful, experimental and different each month.

Sessions are supported by our Art and Play Team and are ideal for children aged 3-12 years and their parents or guardians.

Sunday Spot has been running since June 2010. Recent workshop artists include:

  • Jenny Pengilly
  • Roshni Bhagotra
  • Sadie Edginton
  • Chris Alton
  • Jessica Jordon-Wrench
  • Kara Chin
  • Xu & Ming
  • Matt & Fiona
  • Sarah Hayward
  • Amy Leung
  • Mai Omer
  • Angelica Teuta
  • Elizabeth Oniri
  • Poppy Moroney
  • Nicole Morris


Each Sunday, excluding the last Sunday of the month, our artist-designed Play Space transforms the studio into a fun and interactive environment for young children and their parents or guardians to explore from 2-4pm.

Families are supported to use the space by our Art & Play Team. Sessions are self-directed and open to all but cater specifically towards children aged 0-5 years.
