Sensing our Way: A new commission for sensory-led family play by The Mosaic Rooms
The Mosaic Rooms are excited to present a new commission by Sarah Marsh to make a new series of objects and interventions which will activate The Mosaic Rooms and create a space for sensory-led, interactive, child-led play.
Join Sensory Wednesdays from 11am – 2pm every Wednesday – an open and welcoming space for families where children can explore our wonderful new collection of sensory objects.
Family Artist 2023
The Mosaic Rooms has commissioned RESOLVE Collective for the 2023 Family Artist and Outdoor Play commission.
RESOLVE Collective will design with and for young people in our local area. The purpose of this project is to animate childrens’ understanding of solidarity through play with a fun, interactive and evolving play structure that will be erected in The Mosaic Rooms’ Garden.
You can join in the following workshops with RESOLVE Collective:
Wednesday 31st May – Tools for Solidarity Family Workshop
Saturday 24th June – Launch Event – Family Fair Day
Saturday 8th July – Tools for Solidarity x Mohammad Saleh
The Mosaic Rooms Family artist for 2022, Sahra Hersi, brought her thoughtful architecture and play practice to deliver our outdoor play commission last year, The House of Many Ways, following our first – The Dancers’ Garden by Alaa Satir. You can read more about Sahra’s family artist commission here.
Squish Station (Every Sunday)
You can now find Squish Station; a new interactive clay-play area in our bookshop every Sunday.
Researcher and gallery-based educator, Dena Bagi, has created prompts to help guide an interaction with clay. Dena is interested in how clay can connect us with our bodies, strengthening our innate relationship with the earth. She believes touching clay can help us become mindful, or connected, to fell better in a fast-paced — and sometimes scary — world. Sit down, squish, and create with clay. Leave your creations behind so that they can sit alongside those made by others and inspire the next people that come along.
Designed for children aged 4-11, but suitable for all.
Upcoming family events
