Doodlers (5 – 15 yrs)
Doodlers is an Art and Craft workshop for children aged 5-15! (under 8s sometimes will need parental supervision depending on the make) We create all sorts of exciting crafts and develop your art skills through a relaxed, instruction led workshop. From woodwork, to sculpture (ceramics, wicker…), textiles, painting and drawing each workshop is unique and fun.
Elise is an ex- primary school teacher, specialising in creativity (I still do consultancy work with Primary schools to help them develop and enrich their curriculum) her original degree was in multi-media textile design before qualifying in Primary teaching over 12 years ago.
The workshops are fun, relaxed and friendly, you will learn and develop as an artist and go home with something you are really proud of. But mostly they are just great fun.
Each workshop costs £12 for 2 hours.
Please contact Elise for more details and to book.
