This Christmas visit Wimpole Estate for a creative Reindeer Making Workshop.
3, 10 & 17 December
There’s Rudolph of course, plus Donner and Blitzen. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer? If so, these fun and creative classes at the majestic Wimpole Estate in Cambridgeshire will be right up your street.
For three exciting days this December, the National Trust property’s friendly gardening team are opening up their workshop to help people make their own wooden reindeer for Christmas, and it’s an event that’s sure to captivate young and old alike.
So if you’ve always fancied yourself a dab hand at carpentry, or you’d simply like to learn a new skill, then this promises to be the perfect activity for you and your kids. All materials are provided by the venue and, the great thing is, you’ll even get to take your timber creation home with you – they’ll make fantastic and original garden decorations or gifts for the grandparents.
Of course, your kids may have other ideas and be keen to give their new wooden friends centre stage in their own bedroom, and who could argue with them? Children love to enjoy things they’ve made with their own hands and keeping their reindeer close will provide a fantastic memento to their Wimpole Estate adventure.
The sessions begin at 11.30am and end at 1.00pm, just in time to treat yourself to a spot of lunch at one of the estate’s excellent eateries. You could even grab some picnic goodies from the on-site farm café to enjoy on the manicured lawns – the ideal way to round off a hard morning’s toil in the workshop!
So wrap up warm, get those creative juices flowing and put those arts and crafts skills to the test in a magical, memorable way that will make your Christmas extra special.
And for those still racking their brains to remember the seven missing reindeer, they’re Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid and Dunder. What better way to impress your woodwork classmates!
