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 what they would like to build from our workshop menu of wooden character and car making projects.
In your bench space will be all the tools, accessories, felt, 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 teach 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.
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, un-sanded 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).
