Come, make us listen to your words, make friends with your imagination as you find your way to an imaginary world with your poems and us.
Here are space and platform to create and not cater, thus open up new ideas for pre-teens who are increasingly growing up in single kid families, and perhaps don't hang out enough with kids their age and given that living is increasingly in closed spaces.
In this workshop, children work with one prop - a mask. The session will include DIY work and also ask the children to write a poem.
Age Guidance:8 to 12 years
Duration:1 Hour and 15 mins
Note: Free Attendance, all material will be supplied but limited to 25 children
