We are currently planning our programme for 2020. As part of this, we are looking to teaching staff to advise us on the programme’s content and scheduling to best meet your needs. There will be no charge for local schools participating in the programme.
If you would like to find out more, please contact Petra Cox, Crossness Learning and Outreach at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would welcome your input.
We provide free craft activities for all families visiting on our Open Days. The activities are designed for children and their adults to make and create together in a supportive and fun environment. Each ‘make and take home’ activity explores a different theme related to the Crossness story and participants are introduced to a range of materials and techniques.
We offer guided tours for local community groups on site or we can visit your venue and deliver an entertaining illustrated talk on the history and significance of Crossness (A projector and screen would be required)
We offer Crossness visits, including hands-on creative learning activities, for school holiday groups, after school clubs, youth groups and cubs, scouts and brownies.
