Our work in early years began with our own little people when they attended ‘Grasshoppers in the Park’, a parent led community nursery in Hackney. As part of our contribution towards the running of the nursery, we offered our time as artists delivering a weekly art session for the children (hence our name). When our children were old enough for school, Grasshoppers asked if we would continue the sessions. We have been running a weekly class ever since. We continue to work with early years in other settings too…
“Your sessions bring on the surface children’s skills (cutting, ability to focus, to follow an outline or sequence of movements) as well as giving them opportunities to explore that wonderful world and create their own versions.”
