Summer Holiday Kids Club
Summer has arrived at Create Cymru and we are looking for some creative kids to come and join us! Each weekly session will cover a creative skill across many mediums including; pottery, textiles, printing, paper craft and design. Working in collaboration with Cardiff Pottery Workshops, tutors Kelly Campbell and Sarah Symonds have designed exciting art classes for 3-7 year olds and a 6 week course for 8-16 year olds allowing them to take some time out and get creative in our amazing studios. See below for full details and pricing.
Classes are run every Tuesday 2.00pm-3.00pm for 3-7 year olds and Wednesday 10.00am - 12.00pm for 8-16 year olds during the summer holidays. Each class is tailored to introduce your child to a specific skill, build confidence and give them access to a studio environment with amazing facilities. Children 7 years and under must be accompanied by an adult. We are happy for children in the 8-16 group to be accompanied by an adult or alternatively can be left with the tutor for the duration of the class.
Classes start at £7.50 each for 3-7 year olds and £15.00 each for 8-16 year olds with all materials and refreshments supplied. Discount is given if you book 3 or 6 classes or if you book for more than 1 child. A brief description of all our classes are listed below along with our booking/payment tabs
Being creative can be a very messy business. We supply aprons but it is probably best if you come to the classes in clothes and footwear you don't mind getting dirty. No watches or jewellery to be worn and you may want to tie long hair back in preparation.
Spaces are limited and some classes will book up quickly.
We really look forward to meeting you all this summer!
