Let your creativity run wild at a Mini Maker Workshop!

Your child, aka the Mini Maker, will take on a small wood craft project and build a wooden character or vehicle of their choice.

Suitable for children aged 5 and up, our wood craft kids activity on the Hampshire / Surrey border is a non-digital escape from everyday life that encourages creativity and teaches children hands-on skills in a safe environment. They'll use a range of hand tools and unleash their imagination with loads of fun decorations and scrap wood. 

An excellent addition to the 'things to do with kids' list for half terms and school holidays!

All the projects are easy to make and encourage children to work independently, learning new skills along the way.

There's racing cars, trucks, superheroes, mythical creatures and more to choose from! See the photos for some examples – we love that every creation ends up totally unique!

Every child takes home their creation, along with a sense of pride that will truly make your day.

We can't wait to introduce you to the wonderful world of woodwork!

  • Book online for £19.50 per bench space

What is a Mini-Maker 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 working with real wood and proper 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 what they would like to build from our workshop menu of wooden character and car making projects.

On the benches will be all the tools, accessories, decorations and more needed to make totally awesome creations!

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

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

Based on the Hampshire / Surrey border, 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.

 ---

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

      • One adult can supervise one or two children. Supervising adults are free-of-charge.
      • For older children (around age 9+), one adult to three kids is fine.
      • Adults can make too! (your project can be paid on the day).
      • Please do not bring children under the age of three into the workshop as it is not a safe environment for them.

Wonderful find

My 8 year old daughter had her first workshop today. Workshop is so well laid out and the organisation of all the materials and equipment superb It's that well organised that if workshops needed a showroom it would be here! We done the mini makers workshop where my daughter made and superhero dog and a unicorn. Lovely selection of things to make with easy to follow instructions and lots of little bits a bobs available to add to your creation.

Hi Annmarie, thank you for your lovely review and feedback on the workshop We loved seeing your daughter's creations and hope to see you again soon.

Awesome & Inspirational

My 6&7yr old boys did this workshop after I did the DIY Day. Jonty was so informative, enthusiastic and encouraging. The boys loved every minute and learned so many skills. They’ve taken Jonty’s infectious enthusiasm home and have been building there- toy laptops, crazy characters. The youngest has even set up a woodshop in his bedroom, so he can think about his design plans! We’re going to make a tool pegboard next.,.combining what they and I have learned! Such a brilliant afternoon- we didn’t want to leave!

Wow, thank you for your lovely review Malthi. It's wonderful to hear you are all putting your skills to good use :-)

Best bit of the summer holidays

Voted best bit of the summer holidays by my seven year old. Brilliant experience and great thing to do together. Friendly welcome, chance to develop new skills in a safe environment and the accessory boxes really let them unleash their creativity. I love that each creation is unique. We will be back for sure.

Aww this is so lovely! Thank you for the great feedback and we can't wait to see you again in the workshop

Great time!

My kids always have a great time when they come. Jonty is so kind and brilliant with the kids. Lovely atmosphere and very welcoming. Highly recommend it. Your kids will love it!
They will unleash their creativity, learn how to use tools safely and make a lovely wooden toy they will take home. Amazing workshop for all children.
