What to wear

Please wear comfortable clothes for indoor activities; bear in mind we might do some stretches, so no tight jeans please.

Artwork might be messy sometimes, please bring clothes that might get stained.

Costumes for the performance will be decided during the week (no need to buy anything new)

In nice weather we will visit the local park for lunch, walks and for fun filming projects; please make sure your child has a warm jacket and socks in colder days; comfortable shoes for walking and running around, and you can pack sun protection for summer months. 

End Of Week Showcase

The showcase will be on the last day of the workshop at 3pm; family and friends are very welcome to attend. The showcase is usually 30 minutes. There might be cases when we don’t organize a showcase due to the majority of children attending on a drop in basis. If this is the case children will still receive a short film from the week. 

Early Drop In

The creative workshops run from 10am-4pm but we are offering to provide a pre-activity session for children of working parents from 9am. This time will be made up of some creative games, artwork and play (no extra charge for an early drop in).
