Winter Crafts: Den Building Workshop

Step out of the ordinary and dive into a special nature winter activity that mixes creativity and outdoor play.  

During this workshop families will learn how to build an amazing den from natural materials from around the Gardens! Building a den is a great way to spend time in nature, and have lots of fun!
You’ll also get a chance to observe the dens of native wildlife who have made their home at the Gardens. You’ll be guided by our Garden Ranger, Sila, who will ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.  

This session is recommended for families with children aged 6 - 12 years old.  

Please note that children must be accompanied by an adult. 

The workshop will take place outdoors and will go ahead in all but hazardous weather, so please dress appropriately.
