Santa’s Boat-Building Workshops

Santa’s Boat-Building Workshops

Santa’s Boat Building Workshops start on 30 November and run until Christmas Eve.


Three times a day they need young recruits to help build and decorate toy boats.
The old Windermere Fire Station will turn into a festive production line from Saturday 30 November.
Children will see traditional boat making skills in action before making mini versions themselves.
Under the watchful eye of our green team, children will be given full guidance with their boat creations.
The elves are asking budding boat builders who take part to wrap up warm – as some activities will take place outside.
