  • Can we try a session before signing up for the term?
    Yes, we offer one-off trial sessions, bookable here. If you're new to FRESH, it's the perfect opportunity to try us out before committing to a whole term. We do not set specific dates for these sessions as the projects we do usually take 2 or 3 sessions and can change due to the children’s input and ideas. We try to offer your child a taster when a single session project is scheduled, or they can start a project at the beginning, so they get a really good feel for what we do. Please send us a message at hello@freshartclub.co.uk once you have paid for the session, and we’ll get straight back to you to arrange a date.
  • Why do you charge for tasters?
    The price of a taster session covers the cost of the staff, equipment and materials used during the time your child is with us.
