Free sustainable workshop in Swansea store

Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre, encourages families in Swansea to get artistic in the garden this autumn with its free Little Seedlings Club workshop on Sunday 6 November.

During the autumn months the trees change colour and bronzed leaves pave the ground, so it’s the perfect time of year to give your garden a colourful makeover. Dobbies’ November workshop will show kids aged 4 to 10 how to create beautiful garden art using existing pots, natural objects, and recycled materials to brighten up any garden.

This interactive workshop will spark the children’s imagination and teach them how to be creative with nature in a sustainable way. Dobbies’ Swansea team will share a variety of fun craft activities.

The team will highlight the value of exploring the outdoors and how children can use natural materials like sticks, rocks, and flowers to create striking art in a sustainable way. They will also learn about recycling, its importance to the environment and how recycled items, such as plastic bottles or aluminium, can be used to create a colourful piece of garden art.

Dobbies’ Partnership and Events Manager, Sarah Murray, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming our Little Seedlings Club attendees this November. Gardens are full of warm tones during autumn, and we hope that our workshop helps children explore their creativity with arts and crafts to brighten their outside space sustainably.

“Our workshop is a great place for locals in Swansea to meet new friends, learn more about the environment and try something new.”
