This project was the second in the series Opening the Doors, a programme of art activities for families of all ages to take part in together. The project presented an intense week of creative activity during February half-term, 19 - 23 February 2007.

Each session led by artist Emma Smith was based around a particular technique or way of working, taking more traditional approaches to art making such as drawing, painting and clay modelling and combining them with more contemporary media such as photography, sound, installation and projection. Over the five days of the project, Smith introduced families to these techniques through artists' works and practical activities, including basing activities around the solo exhibition Metropolitan by Anup Mathew Thomas which was exhibiting at Gasworks at the time.

The workshops resulted in an exhibition of work by families in Gasworks' Education Room from 28 February - 4 March, 2007.
