Wurkshop Art & Craft

Wurkshop is hub of specialist art and craft, operating from their mews studio in the heart of Barnes. They offer unique classes, unusual skills and unforgettable experiences for children and adults, helping enthusiasts of all ages to usher art and craft back into their busy lives.

Wurkshop Arts & CraftsKids are at the heart of what Wurkshop do. Whether making an object from scratch or getting immersed in a new skill or artistic style, Wurkshop have the course for it. And they teach real skills by top craftspeople, artists and professionals – this is not glitter and glue, but authentic art and craft. There is no dumbing down, which leads to incredible results.


Wurkshop Arts & CraftsThere are four fantastic term-time clubs, taught in small groups in Wurkshop’s wonderful studio environment. Classes are aimed primarily at children aged 7 to 12 years old, and offer the opportunity to explore new techniques and skills – children go home with beautiful objects and a new, dynamic, flexible skillset. There is also a club for older students working towards their GCSE.

Seamsters: Children build textiles projects using multiple techniques – including dying, printing and sewing – and have the satisfaction of making something from beginning to end.

Artsters: Children learn observational drawing and painting skills using materials such as charcoal, pastels, watercolour, acrylic and oil paint. They build project work influenced by different styles in art history.

Crafters: Children build three dimensional projects and work with wood, leather and ceramics. They use their hands, get a bit messy and creative, and make something of real quality.

Potters: Children practice one of the oldest forms of artistic self-expression, learning techniques such as coiling, slab-building, press moulding and wheel throwing, as well as glazing and decorative slips.


Wurkshop Arts & CraftsWurkshop runs a variety of workshops to keep the kids busy and inspired in half-terms and holidays. As with the regular clubs, children learn new skills and authentic art and craft – going home with something that they will keep for years to come. Workshops are varied and include drawing, painting, book binding, weaving, printing making and more.


Make some time for you, discover a lost talent, or nurture a new skill with a range of one-off classes or courses with Wurkshop. Examples include basket weaving, drawing in charcoal, and life drawing courses.
