Easter Activities

Spring is finally upon us! And while we’re still a little while away from being able to open our doors, we’re thrilled to still be able to offer a host of creative activities online this Easter!

Inclusive Workshops

Having previously delivered a range of successful, Inclusive workshops in person, The Courtyard’s Education team have worked alongside a variety of accessible arts practitioners to create a series of digital alternatives. The workshops are suitable for young people aged 10-15 with or without additional learning needs or disabilities.
