Group Visits

Ffotogallery Education can provide a free 30-minute tour and talk at Turner House, enabling pupils to engage with our changing exhibition displays and to promote confidence in being in the gallery environment and interpreting contemporary art. We can also offer tailored practical workshops in digital media for groups of all ages and ability.

The Ffotogallery Education team can devise and facilitate workshops for classes and groups at Turner House in a range of subjects. These workshops can be tailored to meet curriculum requirements, include a guided tour of the exhibition, hands-on practical exercises using cameras, computers and software and discussion and ideas for activities in the classroom. Prices start at £175.

If you’re planning a visit to the gallery, download our free guide, which suggests ideas and ways that teachers / group leaders can make the most of a visit to Ffotogallery and feel confident to use the exhibitions independently if necessary.
