Family Art Fun Day – Den Building! Led by Milktooth

Together you can play with IKEA's fort building manual, improvising and adapting it!

Drop into the gallery between 11am-1:30pm to make a Den with Milktooth. Together you can play with IKEA’s fort building manual, improvising and adapting it! Dens will be trialled for structural integrity and comfort however we can’t be held responsible if pillow fights or sabotage ensues. The workshops are open to all from children to adults. Please be prepared to remove shoes for full immersion, BYOS (Bring your own socks).

We’re encouraging intergenerational collaboration within all of our workshops as part of current project ‘Squidgy World’. All ages are welcome and we’d especially love for you to spread the word to people aged 65+! You only need to book for one if you would like to bring more than one caregiver.



Yolanda Shields aka Milktooth’s artistic practice is autobiographical and inspired by their experiences of Complex-PSTD. Using watercolour, collage and soft sculptures they explore a self fractured through trauma, and the possibilities of reconstituting an identity by embracing fragmentation.  They are currently involved in making a body of work titled Altars to my Alters.
