    For ages 7-11*
    * Ages 5+ can attend the Creative Art & Craft sessions, when accompanied by an adult.

    Our Saturday Makers' Club offers young artists a variety of fun, hands-on workshops, exploring a wide range materials and techniques from an array of artistic disciplines. Students have the chance to develop their own ideas with guidance from our experienced tutors.

    We offer Pottery and Creative Art & Craft every week, plus a third class which varies throughout the term - be it woodcarving, crochet or special themed crafts to celebrate a special time of year.

    PLEASE NOTE: Due to increased popularity in our Makers' Club, we are introducing some changes, effective from 5 October 2019.

    Our weekly pottery sessions will no longer include glazing - instead, to maximise the number of children we're able to work with, both pottery studios will be 'making only', with dedicated pre-bookable glazing sessions at the end of each Half Term. Details can be found below.

    The maximum capacity for each pottery making session (and our Creative Arts & Crafts class) is 10. For other activities such as Woodcarving, the capacity is 8. We operate on a first-come-first-serve basis. In the event that a particular class is full, you would need to select an alternative creative activity.


    GLAZING YOUR WORK

    Our Half Termly glazing sessions will run from 1pm. THere will be 30-min slots available, which must be pre-booked. Each slot can include up to 6 students.

    To book a sloy, contact the Centre (01296 424 332) and book over the phone or book in person on a Saturday during the Makers' Club.

    Advance payment is required (£5 / £4 members). The cost covers the tutored session plus all of glaze materials and firing costs.

    PLEASE NOTE: The cost of clay / first firing in the pottery making sessions will be reduced to reflect this new system.

    We believe everyone should have the chance to make music and sing.

    We not only help young people develop musically but SING with A BIG VOICE Youth Choir injects a boost of confidence and breaks down inhibitions and self-consciousness.

    Our Youth Choir enables all children from aged 8 and up to sing together and have fun socially. The classes will develop children’s musical skills; pitch and rhythm, intervals and mental and physical co-ordination. We explore harmonies, rounds and call and response songs. We provide physical and aural voice training by singing a wide variety of age appropriate songs from different eras and genres to produce one big voice: pop, musicals, rock, folk, world music, soul, blues and jazz.

    The classes are also suitable for those who believe they have good voices and who wish to develop their vocal skills even further.

    Pay-as-you-go and discounted term fees available. For more information contact Maria:
