About the Course
The act of writing a letter, decorating it, and posting it is a creative and satisfying way to encourage children to practice writing, while doing some arts and crafts.
Most of our post nowadays is made up of bills, perhaps with the odd birthday card thrown into the mix. As a child, particularly one accustomed to the immediate response times of modern technology, a letter addressed to them, decorated with pictures and stamps, could be a very exciting thing.
The structure of the session includes:
An introduction and brief demonstration on drawing and painting
An activity for both adults and children to start designing and decorating their letters
A tea/coffee/squash break half way through
Options to try origami letter folds
Children's tips for how to write a letter.
Tea, coffee, biscuits, and squash will be included, along with all materials. Each pair will receive a booklet of resources to take away at the end of the class.
*This workshop is of course open to other forms of family groupings but is ideally aimed at a child and a person with whom they’d like to correspond.
The upper age limit on this class is flexible and older children are welcome to experiment with more complicated designs if they’d like to attend. Please get in touch if you’d like to bring an additional child, as this is space dependent.
Your booking includes admission for one adult and one child.
