The Evolve Family workshops are specialist creative sessions for children with autism and SEN and their families. The sessions are led by practicing artists and supported by an occupational therapist.

Parent workshops are an opportunity for parents of children with an SEN/D to relax and socialise in an informal environment, whilst engaging with creative activities.

Holiday workshops are fun engaging activities for children and young people, to engage with during half term and holidays.

Upcoming workshops:

Monday 20th & Tuesday 21st February (10:30am-1:00pm each day)
HOLIDAY 7-15 year olds

These workshops will be taking place at the Smile centre in Waterlooville.

Build a Band - participants will get to try a range of modern pop/rock instruments before forming their own 'band' and composing a song. There will be an opportunity to try drum kit, guitar, bass, keyboard, vocals and percussion. These sessions will include musical warm-up activities, introduction to instruments, playing together and composing a short song. Participants can attend both or either days.

We have partnered with the Smile centre in Waterlooville, who are offering us the use of their accessible welcoming centre for the 2 days. Their address is: The Smile Centre, Hemlock Road, Waterlooville, Hampshire PO8 8QT
