Fun in the Workshop

Spending time in a workshop is always of benefit, whatever age you are. For children these workshops are a chance to handle reals and equipment, learn to do so safely and come away with a tangible product to be proud of. For those who already have a passion for making things, each of these days will be an opportunity to master new techniques and machinery with expert guidance. Come alone or with a friend and be assured that you will leave with a new view of your own abilities.

Choose from the following


15th April - Make your own Clock



A popular workshop for those determined to be creative about analogue presentation. Create something unique that expresses your individuality; go for wild and wacky or smooth and sophisticated.

A standard quartz mechanism will be central to your design.


16th April - Make your own Birdbox

bird box ideas

The only rule is....that it cannot be a simple box. Think quirky, fun …borderline silly.

Younger makers may use a simple plan, older/able makers will be encouraged to bring creativity to their build.
Each will be unique, each one-of-a-kind.


17th April - Make your own Puppet
