What to bring

Each participant will need to bring a USB to save all your images.

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.
