We hope you can join us for our Eco Open Day on Saturday 31 July. The day will be packed full of free, family-friendly creative activities to enjoy including;

- How to create plant dyes for fabrics

- Screen printing an eco-friendly tote bag

- Exploring the local area on a photography walk

- Taking inspiration from nature to make your own ceramic tile

Eco Open Day will mark the launch of Wakefield’s first Bike Station at The Art House – making it easier and more fun to cycle to, from and between Wakefield’s cultural gems. As well as more bike parking and a public bike repair stand, we’ll also be launching a new 10% discount in our Coffee House and Shop for anyone who cycles to The Art House.

Plus, you can pick up a brand new Cycle to Culture Map of the best routes to cycle between places like The Art House, The Hepworth Wakefield, Wakefield Cathedral and more designed by our friends at Open to the Public.

And if that wasn’t enough, with your help we will be planting an urban orchard along the front of our building. Once the fruit bushes are established, the orchard will be available for everyone to pick their own fruit right here in the city centre. We can’t wait!

Do I need a ticket?

You don’t need a ticket to join us for the Eco Open Day however you will need to reserve a free ticket for some creative activities to maintain safe room capacity and minimise waiting times.

Tickets will be available to book soon, join The Art House mailing list to be notified when they go live.
