1.5 - 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 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 a short demo showing parents and child 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, including 2D and 3 D projects, structured crafts and more freestyle experiments. Many art and craft projects are one week long, sometimes a project will 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 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. 


This term we will be reading some of my favourite picture books including the hilarious 'Oi Frog' by Kes Grey and 'You Can't Take an Elephant on the Bus' by Patricia Cleveland-Peck. As well as our Exciting Elephant and Fabulous Frog Project we will be making Pirate Paper Bag Puppets and Bird Canvases. Plenty of painting, fun decorating and getting a little bit messy this term!
