We are so excited to launch a new family project this summer called Little Lives | Making Together.

Bringing families together to get creative this summer. Pick and choose the 1hr sessions you’d like to attend.

Over the school summer holidays we are offering a series of free facilitated crafty workshops for children and their caregivers. Participants will get the opportunity to try air-dry clay, weaving, beading / macrame, painting, oil pastels and fabric painting. The workshops have been created to inspire, challenge and increase participants confidence, learning new skills and sharing new experiences with their caregivers.  

The whole programme is completely free to access for Leigh Park families and we will be running 6 full days of workshops! On each day there will be four x 1hr sessions, each accomodating up to 12 participants, that’s a total of 288 opportunities to get creative with us!

Participants will need to book onto the sessions, but can choose the time that suits them best. Booking can be done by clicking on the link below!

Booking Information: 

Participants will need to book tickets for everyone attending (adults & children) and can book group sizes or 2, 3 or 4.

If there isn’t space in one time slot, please try a different time as each session has a maximum capacity of 12. Children must be 5yrs+ and must attend with an adult. Adults are meant to stay for the whole session as this is designed as a family project.

The sessions will be facilitated rather than taught so whilst there will be a tutor in the session but your family will be able to explore the materials on hand and come up with your own creations. Please only book one session a day per family, but you are welcome to sign up to all the different craft forms.

This project has been kindly funded by Little Lives.
