Workshops for Parents and Children Summer 2016
With the school summer holidays looming just a few days away, we've just launched some new and exciting workshops to keep your children occupied.
Our 'Family Summer Sessions' will take place from Wednesday 24th to Friday 26th August with three very different creative activities to get your kids inspired by sustainable, ethical crafts.
Wednesday 24th August: Drop-in Friendship Bracelet Workshop £2
Learn how to make quick, easy and beautiful friendship bands with three different techniques; cording, finger braiding and lucet, that date back thousands of years. 'Travellers Through Time'will provide all tools and materials and will include stories about these ancient techniques and what life was like for children in times gone by. Drop-in workshops: £2
Thursday 25th August: Upcycled Mosaic Coasters Parent and Child Workshop
Learn the art of mosaics and create a beautiful coaster for your home. You will learn essential mosaic making skills including how to design and transfer the pattern, as well as tiling and grouting the finished article. Booking essential. Parent + Child = £25 (additional child £5)
Friday 26th August: Tie-Dye T Shirts Workshops
Buy Less! Dye More! Teach your children to value their clothing by upcycling an old T shirt with funky tie-dye patterns and natural dyes rather than buying something new. Bring along an old pale coloured T shirt, learn some amazing Japanese 'shibori' pattern techniques then dip in our natural indigo dye vat for 5 minutes... et voila! New T shirt! These drop-in sessions are ideal for accompanied children over 7 years old and will run at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm on Friday 26th August. Pre-booking as advisable as places will be limited to 8 per session. £5 per person - grown ups welcome too!
