OPEN Play: Building our Community (family art + craft workshops)

Add to Itinerary


OPEN Play: Building our Community is a series of creative small group art + craft workshops for children of all ages. 

Exploring the theme designing for humanity, kids are invited to utilise recycled materials, interesting objects and their creativity to be inspired by and build a future community.

During each session, participants will be given a design challenge and in a supportive environment, find ways to create new and interesting solutions. The design challenges will be inspired by the surrounding Yarra built and natural environment. Each child will also be able to develop their fine motor skills, explore colour and design concepts and feel a sense of accomplishment after each session. 

All ages are welcome - but please note the recommended workshop time for your child's age group.

This program is supported by the Yarra City Council Small Project fund and the Collingwood Yards CY SPACE tenant and community initiative.
