The Children’s school holidays are fast approaching!! And with this in mind, we’ve come up with a programme of exciting workshops that will entertain and engage your kiddiwinks, using their creative minds and hands to blast through a range of arty crafty activities.

Not a device in sight! Instead they will be using clay, ink, paint, cardboard, recycled materials, wax, make-up and paper, to create crafty bits and bobs that they’ll be proud to take home.

All classes cost just $15 per participant, which includes materials. For Screen Printing, please bring a plain T-Shirt to print on.

Workshops are designed for children aged 5 and up unless otherwise stated. We request that under 7’s are accompanied by an adult.

Morning Sessions: 11am – 12:30pm*
Afternoon Sessions: 2pm – 3:30pm*

*Please note that the screen printing sessions start at 10:30am and 1:30pm
