Children’s Summer Half-term Art and Craft Workshops
The workshops are run by Christine Witham, an inspirational teacher with many years’ experience. They have been running for over ten years at The Harbour Gallery Jersey and are very popular. The workshops are suitable for children aged 5 to 11 years, and offer the choice of a morning, afternoon or full day session taking place during school holidays.
Courses are theme-based, offering children the freedom to realise their own ideas, and use a range of skills. Small groups ensure that children receive lots of support and are offered creative challenges.
The cost is £18 per session, to include materials.
Please provide snacks and drinks. Lunch can be arranged with the café or bring a packed lunch if you stay all day.
