2 - 5 YEARS



Storycraft parent and child classes are for children aged around 2 to 5 years old. Children come with a parent or a carer for a fun creative session at the Storycraft Studio. We start every class with a story from a fun picture book. Some of our favourite authors at Storycraft are Julia Donaldson, Helen Stephens, Oliver Jeffers and Benji Davies, but we also like discovering new picture books so usually they'll be a mixture of stories you know and probably a few stories you don't.


After the storytime there is normally a short demo showing parents and children the suggested project for the class. The art and craft project will normally relate to the theme of the story. Every term we will have a good variety of projects, often including 2D and 3D projects, structured crafts and more freestyle experiments. Some projects are one week, others span a few weeks. Every term we use a variety of artistic materials and introduce children and parents to different techniques, for example watercolor, acrylic and gouache paints, clay cutters and modeling, mixed-media collage and clay or papier mache sculpture, stamping and stencils, pastels and charcoal. At Storycraft we particularly like getting messy and we like mixed-media crafts which allow us to bring lots of colour, texture and sensory experience for little ones into the art room.

We love singing and action rhymes at Storycraft, not to mention all those animal noises in Old MacDonald! So time permitting we try and finish each class with a song or two. 


After the Christmas holidays in January we will start our term leading up to the Easter holidays. We will be reading some great stories including 'Pirate Pete' by Nick Sharratt and 'Penguinaut' by Marcie Colleen. During this short but action packed term we will make a fun penguin canvas complete with snow, and a toy pirate ship that your children will be able to take home to sail on the seven seas. We will also have a very fun, but rather messy art session, we'll be creating a giant space themed picture using rollers, stamps and of course our hands and feet too! We hope you can join us for some Storycraft fun!
