Paper Bat Studios Profile

The Philosophy

This program is developed from the belief that all children should have access to a balanced and creative education. It offers children the time to work with their hands, explore their imaginations and develop life-long skills in making and creative thinking. Students of all abilities are welcome and encouraged to attend the program.

    The Teacher

After taking time to have children, she recently returned to study where she discovered her true passion lay within arts education for children.

      General Information

      PAPER BAT STUDIOS workshops engage children’s creativity and imaginations in a friendly, safe and encouraging environment. We aim to inspire and educate your child in making and creating. At times, we look at other artists and crafts-people, discussing their influences and the way they work. In doing so, we learn to develop our own ideas, visual communication skills, problem solving and creative thinking.
      1. All students are asked to bring an A4 spiral bound visual diary in the first paid week to keep notes, workings and ideas in. These will be available for your child to take home on completion of each term. Other finished works will be sent home throughout the term.

      2. At the start of each class, children will sit down for a healthy snack we provide. Please advise if your child has any allergies and ensure they have their own water bottle.

      3. At times, we may get a bit messy. Aprons will be provided in class as required.

      4. Children may use materials such as sewing needles and a hot glue gun. Please be aware that while all care is taken and caution given, the occasional accident may occur.
