'Art and Craft - Christmas Scenes'

STEAM Powered Education is having its seventeenth holiday workshop. The theme this time is 'Art and Craft - Christmas Scenes'. It will take place at Pier Avenue Baptist Church hall (CO15 1NJ), Clacton during the Christmas holiday on Saturday 16th December. It will be from 9.00 am to 1.00 pm with snacks provided. Children will need to bring a packed lunch.

This should be an art and craft based STEAM activity perfect for developing their creative skills with a smattering of STEAM involved.


In this workshop, the children will be making and decorate Christmas houses, adding trees and other Christmas decorations. It will be all put into a scenery that they can arrange and includes lights for backdrop and houses. This is a great time for parents to do their Christmas shopping whilst their children are gainfully employed creating a wonderful Christmas scene that they can enjoy throughout the festive season.

The cost is £23 for the day. There are only 12 places available so book early to secure a place. Please note that there will be a 50% deposit with the remainder paid on the day either in cash or online. 


I hope you agree that it will be worth it!
