Sensing Our Way: A new commission to create a space for sensory, interactive, child-led play

Sensing Our Way: A new commission for sensory-led family play by The Mosaic Rooms.

The Mosaic Rooms has invited Sarah Marsh to develop a new commission to respond to the unique people and spaces that we enjoy to create a bespoke ‘Sensory Toolkit’ for the gallery. Multi-sensory objects will create opportunities for families to explore the exhibitions in a new way. Child-led and sensory-led creativity lead the way in this commission.

Sensing Our Way: A process-led workshop for families

Saturday 17th September 2-4pm

Designed to encourage explorations and experimentations of materials and our senses.

Working with artist, Sarah Marsh (@TheSensoryToolkit), families will engage in a journey of playful activities that will incorporate touch, look, sounds, and scents. Observations and reflections of this workshop will inform a bespoke ‘sensory toolkit’ for The Mosaic Rooms in 2023. Be part of the ideas and come along to collaborate with Sarah! Book here
