‘Wonders of the Woodlands’ Discovery Workshops

Tuesday, August 29, 2017 - Friday, September 1, 2017

Kids can explore the “Wonders of the Woodlands” this summer holidays during our free Discovery Workshops.

In the STUFF! Playroom Weston’s education team will be on hand to help younger visitors make magic wands, dream catchers, fire breathing dragons and fairy houses.

Every week will take a different theme from Sticks & Stuff to the Magic of the Woodland so there is plenty on offer to keep children entertained.  The ever popular Pond Dipping returns so visitors can learn more about the mini watery beasts that live in Temple Pool.

Discovery Workshops start on Monday 24th July and run every weekday until Tuesday 15th August from 12noon to 3pm with places allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Extra dates for craft activities: crafts will also be avaialbe Tuesday 29th August – Friday 1st September.

Weston is also a “Charter Branch” for the Woodland Trust’s Charter for Trees.  The Tree Charter has been set up to encourage the planting of new trees across the UK and to protect our woodlands.

Along with Discovery Workshops there will be storytelling in the House, craft activities in the STUFF Playroom, woodland trails and the chance to take a look at the Chinese bridges and skyscrapers that have popped up in the Walled Garden.

Discovery Workshops are free of charge with standard admission.

Upcoming Pond Dipping dates:

10:30am – 12 noon (Last admission at 11:15am)

Tickets are given on a first come first served basis.
