When does the club run?
We usually run in line with the Swindon School term dates. We run three terms per year, Spring | Summer | Winter. Each block is usually 12 weeks long with a half term break in between.
What time are the sessions?
I currently run two sessions a week on Wednesday evenings. each session is 90 minutes long. I find, due to the creative nature of our activities, this is the right amount of time to have some sort of intro, get some stuff made, and hopefully test or present their work at the end and of course a quick tidy up
• Session 1 5:00 – 6:30pm
• Session 2 6:30-8:00pm
What Age is It suitable for?
Current sessions are aimed at 7-14 years olds. I’m more than happy to work with anyone of any age but given the type of projects we work on, a lower age of 7 is recommended. In isolated cases I will entertain working with younger children but ONLY if the parent stays throughout and works 1:1 with their child.
In the future I hope to set up a mini makers program not least because my youngest daughter would love to join in!
I can be booked for workshops for any age, just check out the kinds of workshops I offer by scrolling down my homepage
How Much Does it cost?
Each session costs £15. This includes all of the many materials, consumables, components and use of my tools and equipment. This represents great value for money given that sessions are 90 minutes long and groups are kept to 12 maximum.
We offer a sibling discount, get in touch to find out the latest discount.
You can choose to pay for the term upfront or choose our direct debit option which spreads your payments fore the three terms over 12 months making it more affordable per month.
