Cooking Up A Storm 
Using a traditional recipe, measure & mix to create yourself a take home bag of yummy treats. Be care-ful you might find it so yummy it won’t even get home!! (Limit 30. Book at reception. Sessions suitable for primary age – 15y/o chil-dren. All children wanting to participate must book a spot)

Maremma Puppy Paw Purse
Have you met the Maremma dogs, what gorgeous dogs they are!! If you’re lucky they might be up playing in their paddock while you’re up at Flagstaff Hill. In this session you can make a purse with a dog paw to hold it closed. It requires a bit of stitching so come ready to learn to sew.

Proud As A Peacock 
Hear the fascinating shipwreck story of the Loch Ard Peacock, get up close and marvel at its beauty. Be inspired to create your very own peacock masterpiece. Wear your old clothes as there will be plenty of paint flying!

Traveller’s Journal
After visiting the museum, hearing the amazing stories of shipwrecks, survival and tragedy, and handling some of the artefacts that have come from those shipwrecks, come and make yourself your very own journal to detail your holiday adventures in.

Pen and Ink 
Come along and learn how to use an old-fashioned nib pen and ink to do your best writing. Think you can make some curls and flourishes without making a blot? Be sure to wear old clothes, as ink can stain! (Age: Primary School. Limit: 30. Book at Reception)

Jewellery Making 
Come and make something that’s gorgeous and unique that will make you stand out from the crowd when you combine it with your latest outfit or fashionable ensemble! Great for presents too.

Hot Off The Press
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! The 1870’s Examiner Office is back in operation with a team of apprentice printers! Join our resident Printer to create your limited edition print.

Parents are required to accompany their children to all activities. Unless we state an age limit, our programs are created to be suitable for children across all ages from toddlers to teens. Activities are as simple or complex as your child’s imagination and skills.

Friday Flix - 5th October

After the huge success of Friday Flix (a themed dress up and activity day to match the movie played in the Village) during our Little Winter festivities, Friday Flix is back!

This Spring we will be playing 1980's classic 'The Goonies'. Come dressed as a pirate and watch a band of kids who live in the "Goon Docks" attempt to save their homes from demolition, and, in doing so, discover an old Spanish map that leads them on an adventure to unearth the long-lost fortune of One-Eyed Willy, a legendary 17th-century pirate. During the entire adventure, they are chased by a family of criminals, who also want the treasure for themselves.

Come dressed as a treasure detective!
