This is a child-focused weaving workshop for ages 6+. Depending on the individual child, an adult assistant may be needed initially to support the child to get started. Once they have the method worked out, the adult may like to join in and weave as well. Younger children are welcome to participate, as long as they will have adult support as long as required. We have deliberately selected a venue where younger children not participating can play nearby in this beautiful natural location.
Children will learn where materials can be found growing in nature and will weave a creation to take home
