The sword is more than just a weapon; it is deeply rooted in magic, myth and legend. Whether that be the story of King Arthur pulling the sword Excalibur from the rock to announce his nobility, or the flaming sword mentioned in the Bible and other legends, the sword is firmly placed in the old stories that teach us lessons about life. Let your child’s imagination create something to draw upon their honour and allow them to explore the battles of right and wrong.
Young woodworkers may choose from several simple patterns; older participants can create their own design.
This holiday programme is for those who love to make things. It’s for children who like using real tools, appreciate sawdust and enjoy getting just a little bit dirty. Choose one or more workshops from the schedule.
All workshops start at 9:30am and finish at 2:30pm; bring your own lunch and morning tea
These workshops are for primary and intermediate aged children.
THIS WORKSHOP IS FULLY BOOKED
NOTE THAT A SESSION MAY NOT RUN IF INSUFFICIENT RESPONSE IS RECEIVED. IN THAT CASE YOU WILL BE OFFERED ANOTHER DAY OR A FULL REFUND
Spending time in a workshop is always of benefit, whatever age you are. For children, these workshops are a chance to handle real tools and equipment, learn to do so safely and come away with a tangible product to be proud of. For those who already have a passion for making things, each of these days will be an opportunity to master new techniques and machinery with expert guidance. Come alone or with a friend and be assured that you will leave with a new view of your own abilities.
