School Holidays Wharfedale & Craven

Summer Holidays

At Mumbler we love to know what is on for local families during the school holidays. Contact us here to tell us about your school holiday event or activity.

If you want the most exposure, choose a “Featured” listing for just £10 per month. Featured listings are placed alphabetically at the top of the page, include plenty of details and all of your website, social media and email contact and a photo or company logo.

If budgets won’t stretch, we’re still happy to tell the local Mumblers about your event with our free basic listing. Basic listings go lower on the page and have a 50 word limit with phone number only.

We are once again running our Summer School classes for young artists aged 8 and over. All sessions will be tutored with all materials provided. Numbers will be limited to 12. Light refreshments will be provided but we ask students to bring their own lunch.
Monday sessions will be Drawing and Painting days where we explore different ways to make work, developing an understanding of different mediums and approaches.
Tuesday will be given over to Print using some simple and some more complicated ways to produce coloured prints. We will foam board, monoprint, collagraph and other fun methods.
Wednesdays will be a day of mask making and 3d work. Fun and a little bit messy! As with all our sessions, please wear your least favourite clothes.
