Bring learning to life through photography


Inspire creative learning through our special primary education workshops. Our exhibitions offer fantastic cultural experiences to support curriculum needs. We run a range of workshops to engage and inspire pupils across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. All our workshops provide an in-depth learning experience and are inspired directly by our exhibition programme.

Primary pupils at the gallery


Take part in our specially designed secondary education workshops, where pupils will creatively engage with political and social issues. We run a range of workshops to engage and inspire pupils across Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 5. All our workshops help pupils to develop key transferable skills such as problem solving, communication and literacy and interpreting visual materials.
