We take play seriously and create pop-up play spaces for children and their families to play freely.
Rooted in loose parts play, we create spaces that allow for a range of play - physical, imaginative, creative, exploratory, dramatic - players might build structures, create characters, make stories, design sculptures, invent sports, solve problems or just explore the properties of different objects.
We have experience creating early years focused spaces and spaces for 0-11 year olds and their families, for festivals, schools and arts organisations.

RESEARCH AT ENDIKE PRIMARY SCHOOL
We’ve been researching play alongside the children at Endike Primary School in Hull, aged 2 - 11 years.
We've danced, rolled, built, shaped, stuck, carried, tested, thrown, styled and explored together. Some of the children's explorations are shared in this video.
