Workshops


I am available for incursions in the Blue Mountains and Sydney surrounds.  I offer the following workshop packages – or get in touch to discuss a custom project.

Loose Parts WorkshopsAvailable as a one-off or 8-week series. Ideal for years K-2.
Each week we explore a different theme (such as robots, gardens or monsters) and read a different book on the topic. Then we use a variety of loose parts to create something around that theme – individual artworks or collaborations. Children are encouraged to explore and experiment. I provide the parts (and the tape, scissors and glue), they provide the imagination.

Page to Stage WorkshopsAvailable as an 8-week series.
Ideal for years 1-6.
We use a modern or classic children’s book and adapt it into a stage play, culminating in a small performance. (You can read about past books I’ve adapted here. Other books I’m keen to adapt include “The Day the Crayons Quit” or any of Julia Donaldson’s books such as “The Troll.” We’ll also play theatre games to improve confidence and acting skills.

Custom Scavenger Hunt – Available as a one-off.
Ideal for any age!
I create a custom scavenger hunt and map for your group – it can be based around a book, artwork, nature, or any other theme you can dream up. I then come to you to facilitate the hunt. Depending on the age of participants we end with a book or art activity.


Book Making Workshop
More details coming soon!

 

I bring my own supplies and can customise workshops, events, presentations for you around specific themes, topics, books, or events. I work with primary schools, OOSH centres, preschools, playgroups, community centres and more.

Email hello@looseparts.com.au to discuss your specific needs and find out more about my rates and availability. Pricing varies based on number of participants and travel distance.
