Fabrica is the perfect place to bring students of all ages and access needs to inspire and enrich their learning about contemporary art.

Creative workshops

We offer schools bespoke creative workshops that provide opportunities for young people to engage and immerse themselves in various themes across the year. Workshops can be designed around the needs of individual groups including specific curriculum objectives, access requirements and support needs.

Visit us for a session in our beautiful historic venue, or we can come to you.

Please contact Sally Bourner on [email protected] for more information or to discuss your ideas.

Sign up to the Educators Bulletin to receive updates and opportunities for students and teachers.


During exhibitions we welcome schools for self-led visits. Please email our Gallery Manager, Sally Connellan to book your visit. We’d be grateful if you can give us two weeks’ notice.

Arts Award

As an Arts Award supporter, Fabrica has been working in partnership with local schools, community and creative organisations to help young people achieve their Arts Awards and encouraging their development of a personal sense of creativity, critical thinking and self-confidence.


Fabrica‘s Artsmark School offers a range of bespoke workshops, tours, film screenings and introductory talks designed to engage young people in the arts and develop creativity.

Into Film

Fabrica takes part in November’s annual Into Film Festival – find out more about educational screenings, resources or film clubs here.

“I would like to say thank you so much for facilitating such an interactive and enriching workshop for our students...when I asked them about their day they responded really positively and one immediately asked when they can go back!”
