At Oglee Poglee, our mission is to not only help kids unleash their creativity but to reunite families in the pursuit of fun! We were all born curious, playful, artists – it’s just that many of us weren’t nurtured or encouraged to keep putting our creativity to use. Here’s what to expect from an Oglee Poglee workshop, for the whole family:
Freedom to express yourself
Oglee Poglee workshops aren’t like school art lessons – you are in charge of your creativity! We want you to have as much fun as possible, and while we will provide plenty of ideas and themed activities to get stuck into, there are no exact prescribed outcomes to worry about. Use your imagination and add your own twist!
New materials to experiment with
Not every family has access to a walk-in craft cupboard (otherwise known as the Oglee Poglee office!) but at our workshops you’ll get access to everything you need for an hour of creative escape. Paint, pens, sticky things, sensory play… and always lots of cardboard. Come along and try experimenting with new materials and techniques.
Time to immerse yourself in imagination
Each of our workshops is themed to help your children immerse themselves in a world of their imagination. It could be an Ocean theme or Rainbow Adventure, or with our Creative Heroes Club we’re always on a mission to save Oglee Pip through ingenious inventions! Whatever our theme, all our activities will help prompt creative thinking to add to their imaginative play.
The chance to make friends
We love connecting like-minded families eager to enjoy more creative fun as a family. Get ready to meet other parents who want to bring more creativity back to childhood and watch as your kids’ bond as they problem solve and imagine.
Encouragement to get stuck in
If you don’t feel like a natural creative, it can be tricky to know how to encourage your children and nurture their innate artist. At our workshops, you and your children will get the encouragement you need. We strive to be a safe space to experiment and play with art without worrying about the result. It’s all about the process.
Learn something new
If you want to expose your children to new creative ideas and artistic techniques, our workshops provide a fun way to do it without them even noticing. We’ll show them how to use new approaches without pressure. If you thought kids craft was restricted to cutting, sticking and painting then think again. They may even try their hand at potion making and slime!
No need to clean up
One of the best things about coming along to our creative kids’ workshops: you don’t need to tidy up after all your arty fun! We do that all for you so you can relax and be messy.
Are you ready to find out what an Oglee Poglee workshop is like first-hand? Hooray! Come and join in the fun with us at our next event in Berkhamsted or Harpenden.
