From knitting a sculpture to hunting down the ARTcart, there are lots of exciting family events and activities at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) for all the family to enjoy this Easter.

On April 13 join the dynamic artist Connor Shields for Sculpt, Knit & Imagine (11am to 4pm–16.00 / £20 inc. free parking, aimed at children aged eight plus) to explore how knitting, bricks and concrete can become an artwork.

Immerse yourself in an imaginative world of outdoor sculpture building on April 9 and 16 by working and playing together to stack, balance, join and arrange to create your very own sculptures.

On March 30 enjoy Seasonal Family Sculpture Walk and discover sculptures, draw outside and witness the natural world wake up from its winter slumber.
