Resources and Activities Page

We love doing workshops at Imaginosity, whether we are creating works of art with families, messy painting with toddlers, or working with schools on Science and Engineering workshops.

In response to people asking us for outlines of workshops we have put together this page where we will be posting our favourite seasonal workshops so you can do them at home.

We aim to update this resource page and would love to hear feedback from you. If there is a workshop you have missed or something you are interested in seeing on this page, let us know by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
