Meet the Team

All our instructors have many years experience of working with children teaching creative thinking, self-expression and community awareness. They all hold Criminal Background Checks for safe working with children and the vulnerable sector.

We provide all-inclusive, non-judgemental and encouraging programming, aimed at all abilities. Each day’s activity will normally provide a take-home creation as well as the experience.
