Creative sessions for

We are delighted that Dorset Council have awarded us funds to be able to run sessions for young people. Experienced practitioners are on hand to support participants to imagine, innovate, create and engineer using materials available in our Dinky Scrapstore.

We're also able to bring in specialist practitioners. 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. 

Places are limited so BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL. To book a place contact us via our email. 

All of the above sessions are free. A suggested donation of £2/3 per session is welcomed to help with the Shed running costs.
