Tuesday 25 July – Sunday 27 August
Take life at a gentler pace in the Gallery’s indoor Secret Cove where you can decorate fishes of the deep and add them to the ocean walls. Get comfy and listen to the sounds of the waves and dolphin chatter while admiring the beautiful birds and tropical textiles or explore the sensory cave made specially for children with special educational needs and disabilities.
The birds have been created as part of this year’s Norden Farm Beach Craft project with children from local schools; Furze Platt Junior School, Cookham Dean, Cookham Rise, Boyne Hill Infant School, Wessex Primary School, St Luke’s Primary School, Riverside Primary School, Furze Platt Infant School, Woodlands Park Primary School and St Mary’s Primary School.

An exhibition created with local schools and inspired by Me and My Bee, a show in the Jump In! Family Arts Festival.
Albert Einstein said that without the bees, humans have four years left to live. We rely on bees to pollinate one third of the crops we use as food.
This special multi-sensory experience for diverse family audiences including children with SEN, explores the importance and plight of bees, and gives ideas for what we can do to help the bee population.
Craft activities to keep the little ones entertained this half term.
The crafts vary so you can create something new every day!

Paula gained a degree in Art and Art History at Scarborough University in 1998 as a mature student.
Her career as an artist began as a ceramicist making quirky animals. She became interested in painting, initially as an abstract painter. Now she enjoys working with colour design and animals. She combines both in her animal portraits.
Unpretentious, bold and blatantly playful blocks of colour sit behind vivid and improvised strokes to deliver a unique minimalist vision.
Tim has been producing original artworks for over a decade. His unique blend of influences bring together sumi-e style spontaneity with controlled, geometric simplicity. A junction where calm meets chaos, reflecting the relationship humans have with nature.
