School Holiday Workshops

We’re pleased to have Arief Budibasuki joining us again in June/July to host kids workshops through the school holidays.

Learning to create from bamboo can bring us into our feeling-awareness in our bodies and help focus the mind. Skill development and dexterity for using our hands are often considered unimportant, however, being able to make what we can imagine… and also improvise can bring us a sense of satisfaction that’s rare in today’s busy world.

Last year we started our Kids Workshops and made swords, shields, bows and arrows (with foam stoppers), insect houses, and tool boxes. This year our focus will be more around toys and small crafts… though we usually also discuss interests together and ideas develop as we go along as to what will be our focus for the week.

As a general outline:

Week 1 (17 – 21 June)Toolboxes and Traditions… Basic priciples, safety, storage, selection and choose your project.Full
Week 2 (24 – 28 June)Toys and Tangles: Making small toys and figures and recycled fabric clothesFull
