Creative Workshops For Kids!

We can start your children (or help them along) their creative journey under the careful supervision of our experienced and talented creatives.

Rest assured, all of our creatives are fully DBS checked and the majority have years of experience of working with and teaching children of all ages.

 

Our workshop sessions can be conducted over zoom or face to face (once Covid 19 restrictions allow) and are most suitable for children aged over 12 years. 

 

We recommend a maximum of 20 children per workshop and the sessions will last approx 1 - 1 1/2 hours and will cost from £30 - £65 per child depending on the activity.

 

For our online sessions, materials will be sent out a few days in advance.

Earthy activities

Hanging Kokedama

A chance for your child to get their hands dirty by making a hanging kokedama (otherwise known as a Japanese moss ball) - the ultimate small space garden.

Led by Lynne - our lively award winning eco interior designer.

Botanical Drawing

Your child does not have to be a budding Picasso for this

activity!  Kate - our fun and funky artist will help your child to create a botanical drawing from scratch.

Shibori Indigo Dyeing

A big hit amongst children of any age - they can create some fantastic patterns using the Japanese art of Shibori dyeing.

 

Using organic blue indigo, your child will be guided by Kate - our ​accomplished textiles artist.

Make a Terrarium

Bring the outside inside by getting your child to make a mini forest or garden with Lynne -  our award winning creative.

 

Prizes will be awarded for the best looking terrarium! 

 

Cyanotype Printing

 

Children will be creating their own Cyanotype prints using plant matter and other imagery, which will be exposed onto specially pre-prepared Cyanotype paper.

 

The results are stunning as a one off piece of art.

Crafty activities

Pottery

Using air drying clay, children will create two simple products and will only be limited by their imaginations.

 

This activity will be led by Annie - our Creative Director or Elska -  a practicing ceramicist. 

 

Seasonal workshops are

also available.

Upcycling

Teach your children how to actually 'do' sustainability.

 

Lynne - our lively and fun award winning eco interior designer will teach children how to upcycle a picture frame or another object of their choice.

Block Printing

Run by an experienced artist and block printer or Annie, our Creative Director, this workshop will see children choose and make their own pattern and then learn how to hand block print the pattern onto a fabric item of their choice e.g. fabric bag, scarf or tea towel.

Make a Wall Hanging

It looks complicated but is actually quite simple to make for your children once they get the hang of how to work and create knots with macrame cord.

 

A therapeutic activity - these fun and eco friendly wall creations will look great in your child's bedroom.

People seem to like us.....

Both my children thoroughly enjoyed the session and they actually worked together which was so lovely to see.  It was a great way to get them away from their screens, using their hands and learning new skills.  Great direction and tips.

Thoroughly recommend.

Verity, mum to Eleanor and Cameron (aged 14 and 11)
