Spring - Sept Holiday 2023 ... 9am-1pm

Bookings open Sunday 10th Sept, 6pm

Week 1 – Art Lab
6 Rainbow Court

Helen draws from her 30 years of teaching children to offer…
            favourite art and craft activities – from construction and painting, to science and sewing.

Week 2Garden Art Lab
26 Glen Road

Exciting news… We will be making art from the garden!

Three days of exploring the garden, finding out how seeds and soil make magic together, what lives in the dark under the ground, and what flourishes above. Then, creating nature arts and crafts with Helen & Amy!

Sarah’s garden has multiple areas to explore. For example, there are many types of flowers, fruits and vegetables growing, and there’s even a lizard garden and worm farm.

Sarah Hutchison also provides organic gardening workshops for adults in her wonderous spring garden and approached Helen to share her garden with the Art Lab holiday programme. There is a sheltered deck to do the artwork on. Learning support will be provided by Helen, Sarah and Amy.
