February Half Term: Harry Potter
Tuesday 18th February - Thursday 20th February 2020
The WORKSHOP N4 will be open Tuesday - Thursday during February Half Term, 10.30am - 2.30pm. The maximum capacity for this workshop is 16 children and it is suitable for children aged 5 -11 years old.
You can book for a single day or the 3 day block. Discounted rate for a 3 day block booking.
This three day workshop will be a spell binding exploration of Harry Potter crafts! We will make an array of goodies that your children will go mad for, from potions and wands to spell books and feather quills.
- Day 1 Spell Books and feather quills Children will make their own spell books from paper and cardboard, then adding individual decoration to their covers. In the afternoon we will create feather quills decorated with acrylic paint to write with in their spell books.
- Day 2 Potions In the morning we will go on a little foraging hunt for goodies for their potions at Stationers Park. The children will then create potions from a wide selection of herbs and spices and the foraged plants. Using mortar and pestles they will grind their potions. We will decant their potions into little glass bottles. Finally they will decorate labels and name their potions. Once complete they will create spells to go into their spell books.
- Day 3 Wands On the final day of this week children will make their very own Harry Potter wand. First they will design their wand creating a sketch and then they will go onto make it. They will have a selection of sticks to choose from which will be the base of their wand. Once decided children will create additions to the wand using clay that will be baked onto the wand. Finally children will have the opportunity, once the wands have cooled, to paint and decorate them using gems, sharpies and other embellishments, creating their very own bespoke wand.
Now they can put all their makings this week to excellent use, practicing their spells with their wands and making magical moments!
