I am delighted to introduce the workshops with David Pearce who will be leading a workshop on bringing your favourite figures from history to life with storytelling and song. Come along with a favourite historical figure in mind if you like (could be your great grandma, or King Alfred, up to you), and see what stories you end up telling!

Suitable for children aged 3-8 and an adult, £5 a head and please book as there is a maximum of 40. The workshops will be in the same room at WDC

At the Winchester Discovery Centre. £5 each. Call 01962 873603 or book online . Suitable for ages 3-8 plus an adult. (please book as max 40).

 

 February 10th- Crazy Props- 1.30-2.30

This week the workshop will be led by Isobel Simons and will be all about ‘crazy props‘. We will tell stories using household objects for the Chinese New Year. Please bring a utensil or object from home that just sits in a corner gathering dust, looking lonesome and never getting a good play (nothing too precious or large please). I will be a veritable rag-and-bone man with a selection of well loved junk from my own home for us to tell stories with too. Suitable for children aged 3-8 and an adult, £5 a head and please book as there is a maximum of 40. The workshops will be in the same room at WDC.

At the Winchester Discovery Centre. £5 each. Call 01962 873603 or book online . Suitable for ages 3-8 plus an adult. (please book as max 40).

Family Panto workshop. Do you ever find yourself stuck indoors on wet and wintry weekend afternoons wondering what to do with the last few hours before bedtime? Well, the answer is put on your own panto, in the sitting room. All you need is a couple of saucepans, an old hat, mum’s lipstick and a blanket or two, honest. This workshop is for parents and children (of roughly 3-8) who are all up for some fun.
