Arts and craft retailer Hobbycraft* is running free workshops for kids in all of its 81 UK stores (find your nearest*) every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday between 11.30am and 3.30pm until Sat 1 Sep. All sessions need to be booked in advance via Eventbrite using the link above.
Activities on offer include:
- Paint your own ceramics
- Wind sock sea creatures
- Slime Saturdays - kids will need to bring a pot to take their slime home in.
- Decopatch animals
- Foam masks
Hobbycraft told us that children of all ages are welcome, but sessions are aimed at children aged four to 16, who will need to be accompanied by a parent at all times. All materials are included, and you'll only have to bring a pot for the slime session to take it home.
Some stores also do other free workshops on weekends and you can check with your local one for upcoming events.

Workshops, dates and times vary from store to store, but could include craft activities, eg, craft with paper, cupcake decorating and face painting. Children do not need to bring anything as all materials will be provided.
Hobbycraft told us that children of all ages are welcome, but they will need to be accompanied by a parent.
You don’t need to book - just turn up. There’s always the small risk it’s full when you get there, but you can’t check ahead or book, so just arrive in good time.
