What's On

Mini Makers

Thursdays | 2 May | 6 June | 4 July

10.30am – 12.00pm | 1.30pm – 3.00pm

There is tons of creative fun for little hands and feet in this informal drop-in art session. Babies and toddlers will have the opportunity to explore various materials across the sessions including paint, glitter, paste, sand, clay, slimy spaghetti, chalk and much more. Messy play is an important element of early childhood development, appealing to children’s curiosity and helping them to understand the world through their senses. These sessions will also expose them to early mark making, enabling them to develop good concentration, muscle control and encourage their imaginations. Arrive anytime and be prepared to get messy!

Upcoming themes:

2 May – We’re Going on a Bear Hunt – to celebrate National Share a Story Month we will be getting super sensory (and messy) as we go off on our very own bear hunt adventure.

6 June – The Great Outdoors – with the weather getting warmer outside, this month we will be enjoying outdoors inspired messy play.

4 July – Celebrate Summer – One of our favourite themes of the year! Delve into our sandpit, create sunny scene pictures and so much more with this colourful Mini Makers session.

It is advisable that you and your child wear items of clothing that you are happy to risk getting paint on. Whilst the paint is water based it may stain if not washed out quickly. Many of our regular visitors have a dedicated 'messy' outfit for the purposes of enjoying this session to its fullest extent, with a spare outfit to change into afterwards.

At busy times you may be asked to wait.

Designed for age 0-4, but all are welcome.
