We are thrilled to be joined again by the fabulous Coddiwomplers, who will be sharing their craft in two sessions on Sunday 24th October. The morning is a family session, and we suggest it is for children aged 6 and above (for the required finger dexterity and strength!) with an accompanying adult. £25 for one parent and child who are members of The Hive, or £30 for non-members. Any extra siblings will be £5 each.
The afternoon is for adults or accompanied children aged 12 and over. Tickets are £35 per person for Hive members, or £40 for non-members.
These sessions are both held outdoors with plenty of space and cover if required. There will be refreshments provided at both sessions. Please come dressed appropriately for the weather.
This event has a minimum number of participants in order to go ahead. If we have to postpone the event due to lack of attendance, you can either defer your booking or have a full refund.
