What is the Workshop?
An exceptionally fun, high energy, multi-sensory experience. Mega Makers will be given total creative freedom to play with a plethora of familiar craft materials in new and inventive ways. Short demonstrations in how to manipulate, transform andexplore materials will give children the independence and spaceto experiment creatively.
Each session will be themed to help the makers focus their imagination and avoid feeling overwhelmed – total creative freedom can be scary at first! Prompts and trigger words/images will encourage risk-taking as the children make sculptures, objects, drawings, collages and hybrid constructions.
