Running from August 5th to the 24th, particular highlights of the fun-filled schedule include stop-frame animation, artist-led drawing and the opportunity to watch film screenings from the Tate Archive inside the gallery.

The unique sessions, run by artists Abigail Hunt and Kieren Reed, offer adults and their children the chance to open their eyes to a more artistic universe together.

Created to encourage participants to contemplate the concept of art as part of an immersive experience that can happen anywhere, Liminal promises to delight children and amaze adults.

Furthermore, Tate Britain makes for an incredibly unique venue, with the workshops carried out in the galleries surrounded by stunning collections of art and other visitors to the museum.

While the workshops are free of charge, participants are advised to book in advance as previous events have proven extremely popular due to attendance from famous artists.

Families wishing to try their hands at musical composition are invited to book for sessions on August 5th and August 20th. Please be advised that these sessions will be split into different age groups.
