Family Workshops

Family Workshops
Held seasonally: 11am – 12.30pm @ Dorset Scrapstore, The Factory, Alder Hills

Our family workshops get parents and carers creating alongside their children. Each workshop has a theme and we provide all the materials and equipment you’ll need to create a masterpiece to take away with you.

Workshops are open to all abilities and ages, though they’re best suited to 3 – 12 year olds. Don’t worry if you think you’re not creative – we give lots of tips, inspiration and advice.

The Scrapstore is open until 5pm that afternoon, so you can pick up more materials after the workshop!
