Children’s Workshops at The Yarn Dispensary

This Summer sees us host our very first craft workshops for children here at The Yarn Dispensary. A qualified teacher with over 10 years’ experience, manager Gemma has put together a carefully planned programme of sessions for your children to choose from, each designed to enable the children to learn at a pace that suits them and have a lot of fun along the way, playing with colour and learning new skills.

Each session lasts for 2 hours, with a break in the middle for squash, fruit and games (please do advise us upon booking of any allergies or dietary requirements) and at the end of each session your child will have a finished object to show off with pride. 6 spaces are available for each session and are aimed at children aged 5+ unless otherwise stated.

Children will get the opportunity to create their own looms and weave summery and bright fabrics using yarns from our store. Finished object will be a small woven picture or colour block.
