Share memories of your childhood with your children through our Aesop’s Fables storytelling & puppet making workshop this Easter! Fables and other moral stories made their way into our books and cartoons when we were kids, but somewhere along the way, we've probably forgotten some of the important lessons they teach!

The ethos of this workshop is to teach the lessons of these popular fables in a fun, social and positive entertaining way then each child creates their own puppet to bring home and share their learnings!
