Families & Children Modelling Workshops

20 February: Modelling for Junior Modellers (age 7 to 10 years)

A 90 minute workshop introducing junior modellers to building cardboard model kits, making realistic grass (using 'static' grass); making hedges, fences and trees.

Each modeller leaves the workshop with a finished model, but more importantly with new skills and confidence to continue modelling at home.

Parents or guardians are required to stay at the museum for the duration of the workshop and light refreshments are included in the cost. The museum has wifi. 

A maximum of 8 children can participate in this event. 

We realise that some families will have more than one child and would like flexibility in the age range for this event. We are happy to accept 'out of age range' bookings at parent's discretion.
