Workshops & Teaching

for children

Holiday Program

‘Fun in the Workshop’ is a school holiday programme in Mangawhai that lets kids tackle their own woodworking projects under close supervision of a skilled woodworker and educator – Stephen Mackay.

These workshops are for primary and intermediate aged children. The mix of workshops varies each holiday providing real opportunities to exercise creative skills.

After School Club

Our after-school club remains an opportunity for children to get their hands on real tools and equipment under safe guidance and instruction from an experienced and qualified teacher.

Children are encouraged to take on a personal project that will guide and steer their learning.

It runs throughout the term, three days a week.
