For Young People
We have two great opportunities for young people to get involved - Young Harris for those aged 12-16 and Sparks for 16-19 year olds. You can find out about recent and upcoming events below.
What will you make?
Makerspace is a space to make and mend, improve and embellish, and have a go at contemporary craft or digital endeavours. It is a shared workshop and meeting point where art, technology, craft and design are invited to converge. Makers, fixperts, artists, 'hackers' and crafters of all kinds are invited to come along and get involved. We have exciting events that vary from dress making to drone hacking.
The Makerspace is also open for use by groups that are already up and running as well as those just starting out.
Tickets are FREE but please book to avoid disapointment as places are limited.
Aged 12-16? Fire your imagination and unleash your creative side at one of our workshops or projects. Next up is your chance to get involved in our ARTIST ROOMS: Martin Creed exhibition.

Aged 16-19? Looking for something creative to do whilst widening your circle of friends?
In 2016 Sparks participants made animated films inspired by the Nothing Happens, Twice exhibition at the Harris. Take a look at some of their fantastic creations here
