Family Art Fun Day – Just keep stitching, stitching, stitching! 

Felty fun with textile artist Ama Dodzro - we will be making our own felt artworks using sticking, decorating and sewing!

Join us for some felty fun at Turf Projects where we will be working with textile artist Ama Dodzro. We will be making our own felt artworks using sticking, decorating and sewing!

This workshop is for children and their families to explore together. It is inspired by our current project

MakeRoom which is all about sharing and learning new skills!

This free workshop is most suitable for ages 5-11, but all are welcome to come and have a go. We are particularly keen to be intergenerational for this project so all ages are welcome if you would like to bring more than one caregiver




For our workshops & events we offer the majority of tickets free and then offer donations-based tickets after that. Free tickets go fast! We’d encourage you to book a donations-based ticket if you’re able to, to leave as many free tickets as possible available for those who could most benefit from them. Donations tickets can be as little as £1.




Please turn up at the start time of the session and let us know if you can’t make it so a ticket can go to another family!

We work with lots of vulnerable people and in order to keep everyone safe we ask that if you book for the workshop we would really recommend anyone over the age of 11 to wear a mask unless you are exempt throughout the workshop.

Believe it or not, 30% of people who book free events with us don’t turn up! Turf are a registered charity and all of our events & exhibitions are free with the aim to being open to many people as possible without the limitation of cost.

By booking, we hope you’ll make every effort to attend the event. However we understand plans can change; please let us know if so, so that someone else may be able to have the opportunity to attend.

The family days are very popular so if you have booked more than once and have not attended without giving notice we will make a note of this.
