Our new Home-Ed Design Academy for children aged 8-15yrs.

Welcome to our new Home-Ed Design Academy.

Each workshop is a design and make workshop where your child/ren will work on a design project (with lots of options within it) to design a product. The product will be made in the session (apart from 3D printing which takes much longer - this will need to be collected later).

Each session is 2 hours. Each session is £7.50 for one child. Children need to be aged 8yrs+. Emergency contact details will be completed during the checkout process plus any consent for image permission. Please note that we need a minimum of two people to book for the workshop to go ahead. If only one ticket has sold, we will contact you to see if a parent is able to stay or to rearrange the session.

Covid-19 Information:

Due to Covid-19, places are strictly limited. (Following the announcement 8 September - places are limited to 4 individuals). The workspaces and laptop/mouse will be sanitised before the session. All participants will be asked to use hand sanitiser upon arrival and children aged 12yrs+ are asked to wear a face-covering in line with Government guidelines.

Parents need to bring their child/ren to the FabLab and collect them at the end. Parents will need to remain outside the FabLab due to social distancing requirements in the FabLab. If there is a queue at the library main entrance, speak to the member of staff on duty at the door and they will let you come through the library to the FabLab. Please ensure you adhere to 2m social distancing when you come through the library.

Illness - if your child is ill for any reason please do not attend. Please let us know by email (see the email below) and we can arrange a transfer onto a different time and date.
