Sessions for schools

 These 30-45 minute sessions are offered to schools as part of a 2 hour (half day) or a 5 hour (whole day) booking. You can mix and match what you choose. Some of these sessions are still in development, so please ask about them.

Where classes need to be split for the safe running of the more intensive workshops, simpler or paper based activities will be provided which can be monitored by a teacher or class helper.

Each workshop is £30 (unless stated otherwise). Timings vary.
