ABOUT WACKY WORKSHOPS
Did you know that some experts believe children who are not regularly exposed to art and the materials to create it do not read and write as well as those who are?
According to the Child Development Institute, children who had higher exposure to art were better at reading and writing than their peers.
Sir Ken Robinson, an expert in learning and children’s education, says imagination is one of the key components of creativity and innovation.

Wacky Workshops is all about fostering creativity and imagination in children. This is something needed more than ever as the temptations of technology take over from the wonders of making things by hand.
The director, Tami, has been teaching arts and crafts to children in the lower Blue Mountains area for nearly 20 years.
