Taster sessions for Young People
We are delighted that Dorset Council have awarded us funds to be able to run taster sessions for young people, bringing specialists in so we can offer a range of activities.
Next one will be on the 2nd September.
Places are limited so BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL.
These sessions are set up so that we can gauge what kind of projects young people would like to access at the Shed.
If you have ideas of what you'd like to see at the Shed and what skills you'd like to develop, we'd love to hear from you.
On the next session on the 7th October we will be working with Forest School Practitioner, Clare Smith to create jewellry from foraged materials.
