Please note

There are six family tickets available for each time slot. A family ticket is for up to six people. Children must be accompanied at all times. We ask that bookings with only one adult attend with no more than three children. This is to ensure that children are suitably supported during the workshop.

Please arrive at the Learning Studios five minutes before the start of your booked workshop. Please keep a safe distance between family groups while queuing. A member of the Learning Team will greet you and check your ticket or booking confirmation on your smartphone.

If you cannot make the workshop please cancel your booking via Eventbrite so that other families can join the session, even if it is a few hours before.

We will hold places for 10 minutes after the start time but will then invite any waiting families to join after that time.

As part of this workshop you will visit one or two of the gallery spaces. If you wish to visit the full exhibition before or after the workshop, entry to Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life is £12 / £10 / FREE for Wakefield residents, Members and under 16s.
