Seedlings Early Years Workshops - Home Sweet Habitat 8 - 9 Feb 2020

Embark on an adventure in the wild, exploring the natural habitats of some very special animals in this early years drama workshop for little ones aged 2-4 led by our Early Years Artist in Residence, Joanna Parkes.

Let’s go on an adventure! Explorers and adventurers needed. Elsa Eager is a great explorer and she’s looking for helpers to join her on an adventure her to study the natural habitats of some very special animals.

In this hands-on, interactive drama and play workshop children and their grown-ups will be encouraged to use props and materials to create play environments and pretend habitats for 3 toy animals, a Koala, Orangutan and Polar bear. So if you’re a parent, grandparent, uncle, aunty, godparent or carer, come along with a 2 to 4 year old and join in the fun.
