The forecast is that West Cork is going to have rain tomorrow – how devastating after the lovely bright days we have been having. If you are hoping for a fun indoor pursuit with kids, why not try one of the Easter Workshops at the Toy Soldier Factory? The Prince August Toy Soldier Factory near Macroom is holding special Easter themed workshops for children (and adults alike) this year.
There are little Easter figurines (bunnies and eggs) that children can cast and paint. After that, they can learn to make a special origami basket to carry their creation home in style with.
There are two different workshops – the first is the Mini Workshop and lasts between 20-30 minutes. The price is €7 per person or €15 for 3 children which makes it great value. The Mini workshops run on a daily basis ( 7 days) from 10am to 4pm and don’t necessarily require booking. If you would like to check before travelling, contact Mary or Eileen on 026-40348.
The Main workshop which lasts for an hour, does require booking as it will need a minimum of 5 people (children and/or adults) per group. The course costs €20 per person and includes expert instruction on painting techniques as well as tuition on origami. To book your place call Mary or Eileen on 026-40348. It is important to note that this course is suitable for children aged 6 and up.
