Mindful Craft & Play Sessions lauching at FairKind Child!
At last! Our long awaited Mindful Arts & Craft Club at FairKind Child is ready to launch!
We’ve been teasing you with our ideas and listening to your suggestions for these classes for the last few months, and we’re now ready and rearing to go!
We are restricting our numbers to 6 children per class (to be accompanied by a parent or guardian) to be able to keep the groups intimate and focussed, so do sign up quickly as we expect these classes to fill up fast!
What happens at FairKind Art Club?
The arts & crafts we do each week will follow a set theme throughout the term (each term lasting 4-7 weeks), starting with the first theme of Storytelling. The aim of each class will be to create something both beautiful and educational, that can be used at home by the child. Both the making of and the continued use of each project is designed to aid the childs learning & development. Parents will work with their child to complete their creative projects together, as the sessions are as much about the parent & child bonding as it is about learning a new art or craft skill.
We aim to keep our classes relaxed and free flowing, so your child is free to move between the art activity and playing with our selection of free play toys. However, we hope that they will find each session engaging and become fully emersed in the art project. Creating art is a fulfilling and mindful experience when fully engaged, so our classes aim to demonstrate to children and their parents the positive effect creativity can have on our wellbeing.
Each session the art activity will last between 45-60 minutes, followed by a healthy snack & drink and a chance to discuss our ideas and give feedback on each others work. This will be a positive, supportive environment to encourage self expression and help to build confidence in talking about creativity.
We are committed to using only high quality, non toxic & environmentally safe art materials, to honour our sustainable & waste conscious values as a Fair & Kind business. Many of our art materials come from local craft company, Tiny Land, who produce plant based paints & crafts which are fully baby & allergy safe and tested to toy safety standards. We’ve also sourced 100% wool felt and 100% cotton fabrics to use in our some of our creative projects.
Who can join the FairKind Art Club?
Our session’s are best suited to children & parents who have an interest in art and wish to indulge in a concentrated and guided art project. There will be lots of room for self expression, within a gently lead ongoing project which lasts for 4-7 weeks.
Each week we will create a complete art work in it’s own right, but which also forms a part of the bigger project for the term. The child therefore benefits most if they are able to attend every session for the term, so we do prefer that families sign up on a termly basis, however pay-as-you-go visitors will also be welcomed if there is space available.
3 regular classes will run between 9:45am-3:15pm every Monday during school term time; 2 sessions for 2-5 Year olds, and a Home Ed group for mixed ages (5 years+)
We are rolling each class out one at a time, so please note the start dates for your child’s age group.
