7 April 2015 With Love from the Museum

Coffs Harbour Regional Museum is holding a special craft workshop in the Easter School Holidays for local youngsters to make their own very special Mother’s Day gifts.

 

“The best present a Mum can have is a handmade gift from her children,” said Dr Leigh Summers, Council’s Museum Director/Curator.

 

“This workshop is a lovely way for them to create something very, very personal – and truly unique.”

 

The workshop - on Thursday, April 16 – will show children how to make homemade bath salts, body scrubs and lip balms from ingredients that can be easily found in local supermarkets.

 

They will also have the chance to create tags and cards to go with their gifts. The workshop, which will be conducted by the Museum’s Education Officer Shirley Johnston-Learner, is aimed at children aged from 5-12 years old.

 

It will run from 10am-12noon and all ingredients and craft materials will be supplied by the Museum.

 

The cost is $5 per child and bookings are essential to ensure that there will be adequate materials available on the day. Parents/guardians should also make sure children have their own snack and a drink for the session.

 

“We will also be encouraging the children to explore the Museum and its many ‘hands on’ and child-friendly activities,” said Dr Summers.

 

“We are very keen to encourage families to come and see the many fascinating exhibits at the Museum. There are plenty of things for children of all ages to interact with in the Museum, while their parents are enjoying viewing our local history.”

 

The Museum is located at 215 Harbour Drive, Coffs Harbour, and is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm.
