What is Guggleheads?

Guggleheads is our young person’s arts and crafts club.

Throughout the year we provide opportunities, such as the Crafty Cupboard, for us to stay in touch with our creativity as young people and families. Every summer holidays we also run our Arts & Crafty Fun Club!

Guggleheads Summer Camp 2023

The Guggleheads Summer Arts and Crafts Camp will run for the first four weeks of August in a dedicated ‘yoof’ art space in the Art Barn at Guggleton Farm Arts.

There will be 4 separate one week ‘camps’ with 12 spaces available on each week. The camps will run Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm. Hot Lunch and snacks and refreshments will be provided.

There will be a tea party at the end of each week for that weeks children, where families and friends can see examples of the creations children have made during the week. There will also be an opportunity for the children to take part in an exhibition in the autumn term after all the summer camps have finished.

We aim to introduce the students to as many different forms of Arts & Crafts as possible, whilst fostering in them an appreciation for each individuals’ ability to create, respect for one another and the creative environment and to inspire them to keep creating beyond the camp space. At Guggleton we are ever conscious of the links between creative pursuit and wellbeing, and the camps will focus as much upon the right environment and circumstances to help us create, as the outcome. We are also keen to work with the individual groups on team building and collaboration, helping one another to reach a common goal and celebrating the achievements together.

All sessions will be run by experienced tutors who are all DBS checked and approved. There will be additional volunteers on site, so there will always be a safe adult to child ratio.

The camps run on the following dates:

Monday 31st July to Friday 4th August

Monday 7th August to Friday 11th August

Monday 14th August to Friday 18th August

Monday 21st August to Friday 25th August
