Castle Flags (5-7yrs)

Castle flags have long been used to identify the owners and its occupants as well as to send messages to approaching travellers, armies or neighbouring castles. In this fun hands on workshop we will be making flags that share messages or that represent our families. Under the guidance of the Glucksman’s talented facilitators, children will be using pencils, crayons, card and sticks to create their own magical flags. Running at 10am, 12pm and 3pm

The Story behind the Mask  (8-10yrs)

Become a superhero, a celebrity pop star, a mysterious villain or a scary ghoul in this fun mask making workshop. Participants will work under the guidance of the Glucksman’s facilitators to learn simple card folding and illustration techniques that will help them to create their own characters and stories. Running at 11am and 2pm.


Maximum 15 children per workshop

Workshops will run for approx. 50 minutes & start at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 2pm, 3pm
