Wooden Reindeer-Making Workshop

Wooden Reindeer-Making Workshop


If Christmas is about family, it is also about Rudolf. Why not join Lily in the Sculpture Gallery and learn to make your own wooden reindeer to take home and add to your general Christmas décor bonanza? Lily is an experienced wood worker and workshop facilitator. The workshop will involve foraging in the gardens for suitable pieces of wood, then design and assembly with tools* in the Sculpture Gallery. Suitable for children age 6+ (with an adult) or adults. Price is per reindeer made.

* the tools used are hand drills, loppers and secateurs.

10 crafters per workshop – either children (with adults) or adult without child who wants to make their own reindeer. Parental supervision essential
