Family Workshops

Freehand offers family art workshops on a select Sunday of each month. Bring the kids and create a one-of-a-kind treasure together. Each workshop is led by a Freehand instructor who takes you step-by-step through the project so no experience is necessary. Parents/caregivers and children can choose to make their own pieces or work on one piece together. Artwork may be ready to take home the same day or may need to be picked up at a later date.

Times: Sunday workshops run from 1:30-3:30, holiday workshops times may vary. The instructional time will be 75-90 minutes and we give you the last 30 minutes to work at your own pace and enjoy the studio.
Fees: $45 for one adult/child pair. Each additional family member is $20. Fees include all materials and firings for clay. HST is extra. 
Ages: 4 and up. Some projects may be suitable for younger children, just contact us to inquire. We ask that one adult be present for every 2 children attending. 

Please email, call 416-487-2533, or register online to reserve your spot!
