Children Workshop ( 7- 10 years old )


Join us for a series of fun children’s workshops covering topics such as art, nature, DIY and an array of experiments. Working as teams we will ‘travel around the world’ discovering new animals and jotting down our new findings in our own personalised journals. Together we can fly into experiments building exciting aircraft and gingerbread houses.

We’ll be getting our creative juices flowing whilst learning to have fun working in groups. There’ll be lots to discover and you’ll be able to take your creations home with you.

Childrens Workshop ( 4 to 6 years old )



After a string of fun, crazy and educational workshops for the older brothers and sisters (8 to 12), it’s time to let the little ones run riot. 

The adventure will start by discovering that creative tools are everywhere and absolutely everyone has a license to use them. We’ll be ditching our pencils, paint brushes & protractors  and getting down and dirty with a new range of utensils.

We’ll be making use of the different textures that are all around us by putting all our senses to work to unravel parts of the world we often take for granted.

The series of workshops will be hosted at Nonsense store where parents can put their feet up and relax with a good cup of coffee whilst their children are diving into the magical world of art and science.
