Children's Workshops

Have you been looking for activities to keep the wee ones occupied during the school holidays this month? We have come up with another series of short craft sessions for children, to help encourage them to engage with others, use their imaginations and - above all - be creative!

All materials will be provided for each of the classes. We require a parent or guardian to remain on site for the duration of the workshop. You are welcome to enjoy a drink in our Cafe or you can sit with your child during the class if you feel they may need some extra help.

Here's what we have lined up!

Learn to cross stitch:               6-9 year olds                 Monday 15th10.30- 11.30am                  $12

During this hour session, the children will learn how to follow a simple cross-stitch pattern to create a stitched picture. They can choose from a range of different animal patterns to stitch away at!

Make a Jelly fish:                   5–7 year olds                Tuesday 16th,  10.30 – 11.30am              $12

A perfect craft for the younger age range! The children will paint foam balls, which will be transformed into the jelly fish's head using a funny pair of googly eyes! We will then make the tentacles using colourful pipe cleaners. Once complete, the jelly fish can be hung from a string to make a fun hanging decoration!

Tin Bird Making:                     10–14 year olds             Wednesday 17th, 10.30-12.00pm             $15

Using a bird template, we will trace the design using a drawing pin onto a piece of tin. This is then cut out and coloured in and can be hung to make a pretty attractive mobile.

Window decorations:             8-10 year olds                      Thursday 18th, 10.30 – 11.30am              $12

These beautifully translucent hanging hearts are made with just baking paper and crayon shavings. We will sandwich the two components together, melt with an iron and then use different templates to cut out various different shapes.

Plain Bag Customising:           10-14 year olds            Friday 19th, 10.30 – 12.00pm                  $15  

With just fabric, bonda web, an iron and a few stitches, we will transform a plain tote bag into a colourful creation in a few easy steps! This class will allow the kids to use their creativity and imagination to create an accessory to suit their individual style!
