Make and Take Workshops

We have had lots of fun at Stay and Play Workshops exploring new sensory materials and resources with babies and children.  To support parents and carers in their journey to promote and provide sensory experiences for their babies and children they can now avail of MAKE AND TAKE WORKSHOPS.  Designed specifically for adults (can be adapted for young adults/ students). , they are short sessions where you can come along, choose materials and make your own sensory resources.

This is a great opportunity to gain new skills, flex your creative muscles (or discover ones you never knew you had!) and at the end you will have a special, hand crafted resource to take home and enjoy.

Christmas present (stocking filler!!!), party favour, fun at home activity, boredom buster! Inspired by seasons and special holidays (Autumn, Winter, Christmas, Easter, birthdays etc), great for fundraisers.

Whatever the occasion, you will find something for everyone!
