Why kids love our workshops?

We take a hands on, mess is all right approach to our workshops. In a relaxed way children are encouraged to try new ideas, to create things as inspired and learn through action. Developing confidence in a fun space and habits that build resilience, concentration and problem solving skills.


We are all about fun!

We love it when a child tells you of their idea of launching into space with a rocket made of paper and rubberbands! Our studio has enough space to cater many kinds of imaginative play and convert it into an artwork. We have active time for those that need to move and a chill out zone for when they require a break.

Creativity vs Technique

Our activities are not about technique and completed masterpieces. There is no right or wrong artwork as we believe that true creativity is discovered through trial and error. A great idea is often found by mistake and then explored. Technique, while important, can be frustrating to children as their fine motor skills emerge, these are skills that can be built over time.


We use exercises as a starting point for children to explore. Our activities alternate between medium focused exercises and playful juxtapostion – we allow the random, funny moments to inspire. At all times, children are free to explore, to blend different combinations of paint, collage and drawings as they engage in self-expression.

School Holiday Program for September

Science on the Go! - Workshops 

Science on the Go!

We bring the world of science to life, by opening kids up to the connections between what they are doing and the way it relates to science. .



In this workshop, your child will have hands-on experience in 4 different experiments and switch on their minds to the exciting world of science!

Express It - Art Workshops 

This holidays we are making lanterns with lots of styles & themes to choose. Plus plenty of drawing, mixed media & painting activities.



Our activities seek to create opportunities for each child's unique viewpoint. To give them time, space and inspiration to make their own artworks in a fun, social environment.

Decorate it Workshops

Come and decorate your own Dragon Egg with jewels and beads! Plus we will decorate a selection of baked foods, jars & more.



This is a fabulous way for kids to have creative fun designing their own precious Dragon Egg, to decorate sweet treats and something to take home at the end!


Construct It Workshops

Kids choose to make their own vehicle: truck, plane or train to take home. Plus plenty of large boxes to transform our space into their own world.


Cardboard creations

Kids can join together to make large, group constructions such as cities, castles etc. Or they can construct individual creations as they are inspired.


This workshop has each child creating unique Stop Animation video of their own. They each get to devise a script, characters, create some scenery and shoot their video. This can get very addictive as kids often get inspired to make lots of videos.



Kids must bring a smart phone, ipod or tablet, with the Stop Motion Studio app loaded onto it. Then we will help them make simple, fun animations via their device and the app. And you can later download their videos at home!
