Mosaics classes for children are the new popular workshop for children over Easter. The workshop is suitable for children 7 and over, using the tools and designing their own image is just perfect for those who are easily inspired and motivated.

The Easter Hats, MADHATTERS, are easy, friendly and fun to make. Using simple papers crafts skills, tissue and added bits and bobs is a perfect combination for enjoying yourself and creating the dramatic Easter bonnet. It’s just fun! and kids enjoy the freedom.

Pottery Egg bowls and cups are a new idea for Easter, manipulating the clay to form fun shapes and images to hold their Easter eggs. In the second week of the Easter holiday, the clay workshops will involve creating a personalised photo-frame or mirror, using stamps and cutters and creating surface texture using different methods.

The Jewellery classes for children over Easter are split between two age groups: 7+ and 11+ in order for the older children to experience a more advanced form of jewellery construction while the younger children can enjoy the fun choosing their own beads from our every expanding bead bar.
