Our Workshops

Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund our workshops are currently free! We offer a variety of curriculum linked workshops from Early Years to Key Stage 4. We can adapt these workshops to suit different learning requirements and time constraints, so please feel free to get in touch with us and we can discuss these further.

We have a dedicated workshop space in the Centre for schools to do hands on learning such as bridge building and curriculum linked workshops exploring STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, art, maths).

Our workshops include a hands on demonstration of the history of bridge building, and we also do experiments linked to bridge building, health and safety and STEAM subjects.

Contact us to discuss a schools workshop. To find out more or to make a booking, contact Mark Tebbs on 07508 957876 or visit@tamarcrossings.org.uk.
