During the months of April to June 2020, and due to temporary building closure in response to Covid-19, we took Saturday Art Club online and emailed out a new art activity by artist Alice Dansey-Wright every Saturday morning. These were also shared on our social channels. There were 11 activities in total ranging from everything from making paper dolls and wee windows to name plates and printing with paper.

If you are interested in receiving information on any future activities or hearing details on future plans for Saturday Art Club please email info@platform-online.co.uk and ask to be added to the mailing list.

You can find all 11 activities on the Latest section of the Platform website by searching for ‘Saturday Art Club at Home’.


Saturday Art Club is a weekly free art club held at Platform every Saturday (normally in our building The Bridge) and led by artist Alice Dansey-Wright who leads the children in a playful, creative art session. For children aged 4 - 11 years old, the club offers the chance to try out different materials and have a go at making sculptures, drawings and paintings.
