It was a really special day and I have lots of positive feedback from parents. So well done to you and your team!

Year 2 teacher, Woolpit Primary School


At Gainsborough’s House we run a series of innovative learning programmes fostering skills to develop creativity and curiosity in children of all ages.

We offer a range of learning opportunities including creative artist-led workshops, guided interactive sessions in our galleries, focussed workshop activities and self-directed resourced learning in the galleries.

You can tailor your visit to suit and are welcome for the whole day, or for a shorter visit. We also offer an outreach programme where we can bring our resources and expertise to you.

At Gainsborough’s House we want to ensure your school gets the best visit for you and your pupils.  You can choose to build your own visit or pick one of our suggested day or half day workshop theme programmes.

Each workshop theme offers the following types of learning opportunities:

  • interactive sessions led by our learning team in the galleries
  • well resourced, teacher-led small group sessions in Gainsborough’s House
  • creative workshop sessions in our landscape studio led by our learning team

You can pick exclusively from one workshop theme, or mix and match across any of the themes.

Each session lasts 45 minutes and you can book up to 4 sessions for a full-day visit or two for a half day.

Outreach Service

Our outreach sessions are available as full or half days.  A half day session is £175 and a full day is £250.  A mileage charge of £45p per mile will apply for schools outside a 20 mile travelling distance of Gainsborough’s House.   

Home Educators and other learning groups

We welcome Home Educators to Gainsborough’s House and are happy to adapt any of our workshops to suit.

We also offer sessions for Guiding and Scouting groups to help with badges.
