Schools out for Summer!

Schools out for Summer!  Wondering what to do? Join us at one of our fairandfunky SCRAPtastic workshops for creative fun using recycled materials.

 

Each and every fairandfunky workshop creates wonderful creations from junk to get children thinking about the world around them and teach them how to take their little steps to change the world. Whether those steps be simple recycling and upcycling, or planting bee friendly seeds; little steps change the world.

 

But don’t just take our word for it. This is what 8 year old Ciara has to say:

 

‘fairandfunky is really different to other art clubs because we get to use recycled things. I loved making the scrap bugs with old materials from clothes, I called mine ‘scraps’. We also made masks made from cardboard which looked like the ones you wear to a masquerade ball. Helen and Sophie are really kind and if you did something wrong, they would help you sort it out. It is brilliant. I wonder how they get all of the ideas from?’

 

Ciara has joined us at fairandfunky afterschool clubs as well as holiday SCRAPtastic workshops. So she has a lot of fairandfunky firsthand experience; as does her Mum, Julie.

‘My daughters, 8 and 4, love the SCRAPtastic workshops because they have the freedom to be creative and get messy. I enjoy taking them as it is relaxed and there are no rules. Children can go at their own pace and at their own level – I’ve seen toddlers working on the same table as my 8 year-old and each has had a brilliant time. Helen and Sophie offer support, encouragement and guidance to those who need it and my daughters love showing them their creations. Scraptastic workshops are great value for money, creative, inspiring and I don’t have to clean up at the end.’
