Stour Valley Arts offers education workshops to schools, youth or community groups, and further education colleges.
We have a long track record of delivering high quality artist led workshops over 1 or 2 days and projects planned throughout the academic year. Our walks and workshops incorporate art and science, literacy, geography, geology and history. We can also deliver in school sessions for example our Tree Nursery Autumn project and sessions based on our Maths Through Pattern resource.
We can tailor your visit to suit you and to support class based activities, projects and the curriculum. We have a range of artists, photographers, poets, ecologists and environmentalists trained to work in the forest and our new gallery for you to choose from.
Half-day guided walks can be arranged to view the sculptures.
Gallery visits can be booked to view the exhibitions at our new gallery in Elwick Road, Ashford and should be notified well in advance.
In order to ensure safe planning and coordination of visits and to conform to forestry requirements all groups planning a visit to King’s Wood should contact the SVA office well in advance.
All SVA staff and artists are trained and have specialist knowledge of the site and works of art.
