Welcome to a home of creativity

School Holiday Activities

We offer a range of full and half-day workshops sure to bring out the creativity in your child. Sometimes foraging for natural materials to incorporate in our projects, we regularly use nature to inspire our themes. We promote re-using, recycling and reducing waste in a fun and creative way.  Favourite projects include bug houses, bird boxes and feeders, felt animals, dream catchers, mobiles, painting, air-dry clay and pompom creations along with our very popular junk modelling. Our well stocked studio offers endless possibilities for a creative mind. We are proud to provide a space where children are free to relax and create in a safe environment
What is included

All the tools and materials needed for your children to create some lovely projects. Children take home everything they make each day. 

Time

Hours of workshops vary depending on the activity, but as a guide a full day is generally 9.30-3.30pm, £27.50 per child

Half day: 10am-12.30pm or 2pm-4.30pm from £15 per child. 

What to bring

Wear old clothes - we get messy. Some paint/glue may not wash off! When weather allows, we often create outside in our garden area so a coat and sensible shoes are advised. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks but PLEASE NO NUTS! If you child is attending a full day (or 2 half-day workshops) then a packed lunch is essential - it's hungry work! To create a relaxing and creative atmosphere, we do not allow children to be on phones whilst in our studio. However, they are welcome to have them during break times.

Location

A short drive from Wellington town centre, and set in beautiful surroundings with off-road parking - see Contact Us for directions, postcode finders DO NOT find us.

Event Sizes

We have between 6-12 spaces available on each event, depending on the activity, so that our instructors can give each child maximum attention and support. Spaces go quickly, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Please let us know of ANY special requirements your child may have. Most of our children's events are suitable for 8 years and over, but please ask if you have any queries.

Testimonials

My two daughters and some of their Year 6 friends have just spent a fantastic day at Bodley Craft returning home with Halloween garlands, lentil pictures, door hangers, felt ponies, tea lights for Christmas and much more. What a fabulous day and we're busy looking at our diary to see if we can fit another day in before Christmas.

My son had a great day with you today, I am so impressed with the quality (and quantity!) of items he brought home! A lovely mobile, a wooden painted bird house, painted pebbles, candles - even a cuddly toy! Thank you so much, I know when he is with you he will be well looked after and have a lovely day!

Mrs F, Taunton

 

Thank you again for your holiday clubs! My daughter enjoyed all 3 days - which were all completely different. So many ideas, and lovely items she will treasure! I particularly like our felt chicken - it has pride of place in our kitchen! We will return for your next club days as we simply don't want to miss out!

Mrs H, Langford Budville

 

My daughter and her friend have just arrived home from your Easter workshop. They are absolutely buzzing! They had a wonderful time, have loved all your projects and have learnt how to plait and sew in one day! Thank you so much, a great way for me to have a break, and them to learn new skills. I will recommend you to everyone!

Mrs B, Wellington
