Activity days and Workshops

So many times we’ve heard parents and teachers, and our own friends, say that they would love to come to our clubs. We have so much fun doing these activities with kids but they are just as good (if not better!) with grown up chat, food and drinks! Below are a few activities and workshops that we are currently offering. Check our facebook page for dates when we will be running each of the sessions, and contact us via facebook or [email protected] to book places. 

We can run these sessions for private groups too – great for more mature birthday parties, laid back stag and hen do’s, or just a group of friends looking to do something a bit different. Just contact us to discuss any ideas. Prices may vary slightly depending on the group size and weekday or weekend and activities may vary slightly depending on weather and group size.

Wild Art Workshop

One of the best ways to spend time outside and get away from the stresses of day to day life, is to be creative in nature. During these days we will take you to places with an abundance of natural colours, textures and shapes, and you’ll have the woods and beaches to turn into our gallery of sculptures and artworks. We’ll give you some hints, tips and some inspiration but it’s a chance to to let your creative juices flow and leave behind some transient art with aspirations of Andy Goldsworthy!
