Family Takeover

- The Edge

Events Cancelled

Our visitors, students and staff are our top priority and after careful consideration on the growing concerns of coronavirus (COVID-19) we have come to the difficult decision to cancel these Family Takeover sessions. We apologise for any disappointment caused.

Visitors who would like to know the latest regarding visiting The Edge can find our most up to date details on the visit page. For University of Bath advice and guidance regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) please visit the University webpage. You can read the latest advice from Public Health England on their webpages.

Join artist educator Victoria Willmott for a series of fun and informal creative activities that explore our current exhibition or special themes. Family Takeovers happen every fortnight during advertised dates (see below) and are particularly suitable for children aged 4-12 years.

Families can drop-in and stay for ten minutes or an hour – it’s up to you! Victoria can also help you complete our free activity sheets. Aprons are available but activities won’t be very messy. Materials are provided free of charge, but donations are welcome.


Free – drop-in between 11am – 2pm
Dates: 18 Apr, 2, 16 and 30 May


Slow Painting is an exhibition of paintings that take their time, and invite us to do the same. Featuring 19 artists whose work spans a myriad of styles and applications from figuration to abstraction, this show explores how art has reacted, like everything else, to digital technology, both on the level of making and reception.

We’ve been coming to Family Takeover for a year now and just want to say how much we love it. Great ideas for kids’ art beyond basic colouring, and always nicely tied in with the exhibitions. Good way to introduce kids to art in wider context that way too. Also, great therapy for mum!

Workshop Leader: Victoria Willmott is an illustrator and artist educator with a BA in Illustration from Camberwell College of Arts and an MA in Multi-disciplinary Printmaking at University of the West of England.

Victoria designs creative art workshops for children and specialises in experimental drawing, painting and printmaking. Using imaginative and playful approaches to creating art Victoria encourages all ages to pick up a pencil. She jointly set up Bristol Print Collective who deliver printmaking workshops for adults and children across the South West. Victoria runs sessions with the RWA in Bristol and assists at the Family Saturdays at Hauser and Wirth in Somerset.
