Explore colour, light, textures and pattern with Dion Sears, the Brewhouse Learning Manager. We will try new creative materials each week, gaining lots of creative skills while having fun and exploring. Wear something you can get a bit messy in!
This session is best suited to 2 – 5 year olds and all children must be accompanied by an adult. No more than 3 children per adult please, due to the nature of the craft activity. Under-2s can attend with older siblings or friends but the activity is not as suitable for them so please bring along toys or something to keep busy doing.
Each session £3.50 or book 9 sessions for £25. (Accompanying adults don’t require a ticket). Please note that we adapt our class and activity to ensure it is best suited to the numbers of children taking part.
