About this Event

Join us for the 10th Anniversary edition of Baby Art Hour!

Led by Éilis Kirby (EAK), these sessions are for children aged five and under and their carers. Come play, create and have fun while exploring simple, easily available materials, texture, colour, processes and ideas. There is no set outcome, only a theme and discoveries to be made. These sessions provide the space for you and your young companion to create together, or alongside each other.

Éilis Kirby (EAK)

Spike Island studio holder Éilis Kirby lives and works in Bristol where she operates as EAK Enterprises, incorporating EAK Press and other departments. Using found objects, images and texts, she makes artists’ books, collages, sculpture and installation that explore formal concerns, humour, pathos, absurdity, our relationship to the world around us, and that challenge mainstream values and hierarchies. She has a keenness for the discarded and overlooked, thinking through doing, and is an avid proponent of making-do, experimenting and improvising.


This event will be wheelchair accessible and there is lift access.

There are baby changing facilities.
