The Remit – Christmas Crafts
An arts and craft class for children aged 8+, focussed on reusing materials to develop key creative skills.
Remit club sessions aim to teach children aged 8+ basic art, crafting, textile and photography skills in our colourful workshop. All makes can be taken home. We reuse scrap and recycled materials wherever possible, encouraging wider thinking and developing creativity.
Sessions last 1.5 hours and parents/carers are welcome to drop off children for this time or stay as preferred. There is no obligation to block book, however attending weekly will allow children to complete larger projects where materials require time for drying etc.
The first 7 week block has a Christmas countdown focus. During this block, children will be encouraged to help develop and shape the New Year programme and make the club their own.
