Mini Makers

Every Wednesday, Drop-in 10am - 11.30am, £2 per child 

Mini Makers is our weekly session for pre-schoolers to get creative and play. Each week our Engagement Coordinator Emily prepares a fun creative activity for little people and their grown-ups to enjoy together - activities are intended to encourage self-expression and the development of motor skills. Mini Makers is also an opportunity for children to develop social skills whilst making and playing with other similarly aged children (we have plenty of educational toys too!). For parents and guardians it’s a chance to grab a brew and socialise with other parents in a fun and engaging space.

Children must be accompanied at all times
