Learn to knit & fold origami these school holidays
Each July, the National Arboretum (located 10 minutes from the CBD) wrap up the trees in the forests in scarves to keep them "warm" through winter. Volunteers spend all year creating the creative and colourful scarves to adorn the trees, creating a magical winter wonderland in the forests. These ACT July school holidays at the Visitors Centre, the National Arboretum will also be hosting FREE craft activities so kids can "drop in" and learn how to knit, or fold origami.

Knitting will be held every day between 1st-16th July, between 10am to 2pm for all ages. Learn how to knit or paper-fold a cherry blossom to contribute to this year's Warm Trees. All materials provided. Parents/adults must supervise children. No need to book.

Origami will be held on the 1st, 2nd, 8th, 9th, 15th and 16th July, between 11am to 12 noon for 7-12 year olds. Learn the art of Japanese origami and make a flower that you can take home or add to the strings of decorative flowers in the Village Centre. Bookings essential on 02 6207 8484 or email:

* Also see the National Arboretum website for their July school holiday program 'Walking with the Wollemis' ($12 per child).
