Back in September I wrote this post detailing some of the fantastic art and craft workshops around Bath. With the Easter Holidays coming up, I thought I’d revisit Bath’s wonderful maker scene and share even more great workshops, this time with a few for the kids thrown in too.
Julia’s beautiful studio opened in October last year. It’s based in Bear Flat just five minutes from the city centre and hosts a vast range of really interesting workshops. You can try your hand at textile, paper and clay crafts, or take the kids along to one of their crafty Easter clubs.

The Holburne Museum
The Holburne Museum has a wonderful collection of year-round workshops for adults, children and families. For the children there are frequent art clubs, exploring creative activities inspired by the museum’s collection. For adults there are fairly regular walk and draw events, which allow you to take in the city of Bath in a really unique way. Learn more about all of the Holburne Museum’s workshops here: https://www.holburne.org/planning-your-visit/whats-on/
The Edge is the University of Bath’s own art gallery and creative hub. It’s open to the public and boasts a really exciting programme of events, workshops and classes. These include dance classes, life drawing sessions, music tuition, family takeover events and much more: https://www.edgearts.org/
Meticulous Ink is a stationery design and print company based in Walcot Street. As well as providing beautifully designed paper goods, the studio hosts a selection of calligraphy, hand lettering and brush lettering workshops. Their workshops are suitable for anyone over the age of 12, but children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Learn more here: https://meticulousink.com/pages/workshop
