Create and Play | Art and Craft Sessions

Create and Play

For 1.5–5 year-olds and their parents/carers

These sessions are for parents and their children, so we kindly ask that you stay and co-create with your little ones. There is the option to book for a course (1 term) – our best value option. If it’s your first time book a FREE TASTER session and come along and find out what it’s all about.

Imagine this...

The freedom for your child to explore and create, inspired by nature.

Children will have the freedom to explore and create, inspired by nature. Whether through painting, playdough, sculpting, messy play, collage, or big-scale group art.

Create and Play is about having fun, creating together, and developing listening skills as well as a connection to the natural world through craft.

Co-creating with your child is an important part of these sessions.

What they'll take away:

Every term we have a brand-new focus, so you can continue to enjoy creating new art through the year as the seasons change.
