Recycled Art Workshop and Demonstration

Tuesday 2 August. Drop in from 11.30am – 1.30pm

Repurposing and reusing old tyres in an outdoor space is not only a fantastic and efficient idea but also a sustainable way of protecting the environment, given that they can take so long to decay. This workshop will give participants the opportunity to give tyres a new life through creating a work of art and learning how it can be turned into an outdoor seat or planter for your garden!


Zumba Gold

Tuesday 9 August.12pm – 12.30pm OR 12.45pm – 1.15pm

Join this fun and active fitness and dance combination class to better your health while having fun!

Take advantage of Zumba Gold’s modified, lower impact format to the sound of fabulous Latin music. Zumba Gold is ideal for beginners of all ages and abilities due to its easy-to-follow choreography and slower pace. This lower intensity class still allows you to work up a sweat as it’s an excellent form of cardio, strengthens muscles and improves flexibility, balance and coordination.


Kokedama & Macrame Workshop

Tuesday 16 August. 11.30am – 1.30pm

Come along to this combined craft workshop to learn about and try the ancient art form of macrame as well as the Japanese craft of Kokedama!

Through learning just a few basic macrame knots, you will be set to create a key chain or small plant hanger while seeing examples of other projects that can be created out of rope.

Alongside this, you will have the opportunity to create a Kokedama to go with your pot hanger. Kokedama, known as ‘the poor man’s bonsai’ involves binding up a plant using dirt and twine to make ideal indoor hanging plants. We will demonstrate how to create these and how to care for your plant afterwards.

Suitable for people 12 years and over


Green Earth Kids in The Garden

Tuesday 23 August. 11.30am – 1.30pm

Discover and learn all about the wonders that can be found in our gardens with your little ones through play, exploration and craft activities. A range of topics will be covered where your child can learn all about insects, flowers and growing fruits and veggies.

Each child will get the opportunity to plant a seedling and take it home to watch it grow on completion of the session.
