July Children's Craft Month

 

July is traditionally Craft Month for Children at Flowerfield Arts Centre. To encourage potential makers of the future, we offer children the chance to try crafts like Pottery, 3D Printing, Glass Fusing and Textiles, in 5 day workshops, each week. Crafts are taught by qualified makers and artists in our fun filled Arts Centre.

Parental Consent. When enrolling, complete the form in full, giving name of child & age at last birthday, contact numbers and full address also sign the ‘Parental Consent’ section on the back of the form. If enrolling by phone, the receptionist will take these details and the parent or guardian must sign the consent form on the first day of the child’s attendance.
Photography - for archives and publicity, we may photograph the children’s and their classwork. We always ask permission from parents and guardians to do this, so if you do not want your child to be included in the photo, strike out the relevant sentence on the back of the enrolment form.
Age. All the workshops are designed to give the best creative experience to the widest range of children and parents are advised to enrol children within their true age group to ensure they get the creative learning experience best suited to their ability.
