A centre for contemporary art in Leeds' South Bank

The Tetley is a fantastic, child-friendly art space in the heart of Leeds. They are a contemporary venue with galleries, a learning studio, workspaces, a restaurant and bar and seek to engage people of all ages in all that is art.

The Tetley welcomes parents with babies and very young children, as well as teenagers and young people. They offer a range of creative opportunities for young visitors to enjoy including ‘Tiny Tetley’ creative play sessions, weekend and holiday drop-in activity and artist-led workshops.

The family Art Workshops are creative activity sessions led by artists. They are inspired by their arts programme and the building itself. Activities that are run include everything from making simple prints, to designing robots, book-making and creating recycled crafts. These drop-in activities are free and open to all but are especially suitable for families with children aged 5 to 11.

The Tiny Tetley workshops take place on the fourth Wednesday of each month and are led by artists with great skills with the under fives. Inspired by all things creative, activities can include anything from sensory activities to playing with lots of different types of bright colourful materials and drawing on a big scale. They are the perfect class for engaging children in sensory and messy play. It costs £3 per child and advanced booking is required.

One of the big exhibitions here that is worth visiting is the outdoor feature 'The Sun Shines Forever'. It is a new sculpture by Todmorden-based artist Matthew Houlding. It is a truly interactive exhibition that you can touch! You can also step through the doorway, make a picnic on a boulder or play hide-and-seek through the coloured windows! Children of all ages will love this feature as it is an oasis of calm and colour.
