Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for children aged 6 to 11 years. It is open to all ability levels and children don’t need previous art and craft experience. All our staff are DBS checked.

The course is accessible for children of all abilities who can participate in practical art and craft activities. A parent or carer may assist their child if required. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible.

Age ranges are set carefully to take into account key age developments, materials being used and course stimulus. It is very important that age ranges are not too large or across key stages and therefore need to be adhered to.
