What is a Mini-Maker Workshop?
A mini-maker workshop is a fun 1.5 hour family woodworking session in our Crondall workshop.

Makers who have enjoyed these sessions before know that they're not your average craft activity! We believe children should have a chance to experience proper woodwork with real tools and let their creativity and imagination run wild. Their pride and sense of achievement at making something awesome will absolutely make your day.

On arrival, mini-makers will choose their projects – we have wooden characters, scrappy racer cars or even egg cups, wooden mallets and rainbows! This range will be added to regularly.

In your bench space will be all the tools, accessories, extra scrap wood, fabric, wood curls and more needed to make totally awesome creations!

Suitable for children aged 5 and up, these sessions are a fun creative activity that will teach your children hands-on woodworking skills in a safe environment.

Children will learn new skills including how to use basic hand tools, plan out a project, sand wood and connect pieces together using dowels or glue. They will leave with a huge sense of pride and a fantastic imaginative creation built with their own hands. 

Jonty's warm welcome always makes everyone feel at home in the workshop and he will be on hand to offer tuition and advice throughout the session.

Woodworking Projects
Choose your project on the day and only pay for what you make. Guide prices are:

Character building projects – £14 - £17

Scrappy Racer car building projects – £17 - £19

Other woodworking projects – from £20

Paints and accessories – from £5


Covid Restrictions & Self Isolation
From 17th May - 21st June the workshop will fall under Stage Three of the roadmap out of lockdown. This means that we will have reduced capacity at each session. 

If you need to self-isolate then you can either postpone to another date or choose a voucher for the total cost of your workshop to use towards make-at-home kits, giving you something to do with the kids whilst at home.    

COVID-Secure Workshops 

      • You will be shown to your bench space and asked not to move around the workshop unless necessary. 
      • Adults and children over 12 must bring a face covering and wear it on arrival and when moving around the workshop.  
      • There will be hand sanitiser available on each bench and hand soap and paper towels in the toilets. 
      • Each bench space will have a set of tools available for use which will be cleaned thoroughly between each session.
      • Refreshments – We are unfortunately unable to provide refreshments at this time. You are welcome to bring your own soft drinks but please do not bring food into the workshop. 

The Rule of Six 
The latest guidelines state that “COVID-19 Secure venues, such as hospitality venues (and workshops!), can still hold more than six in total within those venues but groups of up to 6 must not mix or form larger groups.” 

Therefore it is possible for you to visit the workshop as a group of six. If you would like to do this, please book your bench spaces and then let us know via email that you are together. 

We looking forward to welcoming you back to the workshop 😊 🤞 


Please note: 
Children must be accompanied by a grown-up at all times in the workshop. They will have access to tools, un-sanded wood, glues etc and must be properly supervised.

      • One adult can supervise one or two children.
      • For older children (around age 9+), one adult to three kids is fine.
      • Adults can make too! £5 workbench fee per maker applies (this can be paid on the day).
