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. 


In May we will start our term leading up to the Summer holidays. This term we will walk through the jungle and meet some colourful, noisy animals. Our 'Jungle Animals' theme will include some great stories such as 'Monkey and Me' by Emily Gravett and 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' by Judith Kerr. Our fun animal projects will include a Tiger Lantern, Monkey Canvas, Sloth Pencil Pot, Panda Piggy Bank and a Parrot Puppet. This term includes a mixture of 2D and 3D projects, plenty of painting and lots of decorating using a fun variety of embellishments. We hope you can join us for some Storycraft fun!
