2018 Summer Workshops

July 11-Fairy Gardens

The Victorian era saw an increase in the interest in fairies and elves as settlers looked back to the folk tales of their ancestors. Fairies and elves were both good and bad, pranksters and helpful. They were the guardians of nature, woodland animals and gardens. They were helpful if you respected them, but caused problems when you didn't. In this workshop children will create their own fantastical woodland village using natural and recycled materials.

-Dough Art

Children will get the chance to create two different types of fun dough: Salt dough which will be shaped, baked, painted and made into magnets and playdough which will be dyed into different colours and can be reused over and over again!
