We think carefully about the suggested age range for our activities and this workshop is only appropriate for children over the age of 8 years.
Parents and guardians are required to stay in the library during the session and are encouraged to stay in the makerspace to engage with the activity alongside their child.
Bookings are essential as places are limited to 10 children a session.
Jen Beer is the Sydney City Farm learning facilitator. She loves sharing the hidden nature of the farm with children and city dwellers.
Jen will be joined by experienced makerspace facilitators.
