Would you and your family like to be involved in the development of a new family learning resource at The Hepworth Wakefield?

Children with autism and their families are invited to join us for two fun creative sessions

These sessions will inform the development of a brand new learning resource for families launching in Spring 2017. This might include art materials, handling objects and creative activities, the outcome will be informed by you and the artist team running the sessions. You will work with us to test ideas and feed into the development of this exciting new offer for families.
