Crafty Monkeys – FREE Family Workshops

WebNews Large

Throughout the year we hold FREE family workshops in Idlewells, for visitors of all ages to turn up and join in!

Decorating cakes, bags, biscuits, flags, flower arrangements… you name it and we will try to make it happen!

The free workshops are often hosted by our independent retailers, who provide all the necessary ingredients or materials with Idlewells – free of charge!

All ages are welcome to participate, and you take home whatever you make!

Our house photographer will usually be on hand to take pictures and post them to our Facebook page for you to download and keep when you get home!

Details of each workshop will be posted on this website and on our Facebook page in good time for you to plan ahead!

We look forward to seeing you at the next Cheeky Monkeys Free Family Workshop!

Forthcoming events 2015/16 include:  Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Easter, Father’s Day and Summer.

A few terms and conditions: Parents must stay with their children throughout, and must listen to the advice and requests of the workshop organiser when it comes to use of materials and (where required) tools. There are no age limits specifically, but again the workshop organiser’s decision on suitability will be final. All materials, prizes and gifts are provided at the discretion of the organiser and the Idlewells Management Team. Photographs remain the property of Idlewells Shopping Centre.  Should you wish for your photograph NOT to be used on our Facebook page, please make it clear to the photographer on the day.
