Something for the kids to while away at, during the school holidays. The Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne are running a Fantastic Friends - School Holiday Craft Workshop at the Plant Craft Cottage, RBGV, Melbourne Gardens near H gate, Melbourne, on Wednesday 11 April 2018. The workshop runs continuously between 10.30am and 2.30pm and is suitable for children ages 4 plus, with an accompanying adult. Tickets are $7 per child and no prior booking is required.
There'll be a variety of plant material such as gum nuts, cones, seed pods and other interesting items for young imaginations to go wild. Children can spend half an hour or so and create their very own 'Fantastic Friend' to take home. The RBGV website is a great page to bookmark as there's always events ongoing for young and old. Adults can have some fun at the upcoming Pot Pourri Workshop, where they can create their own natural room air freshener. There are also freebie events where you can go along and give it a go like the Natural Dye Craft Group and the Working with Fibre Craft Group and more. Their Botanic Art Workshops are particularly popular.
