What our customers say:

” STRENGTH HEROES 🌈🤩 Ava loved attending a two day @strengthheroes ‘Mistake Maker’ workshop 🥰 She learned what to do when making mistakes, why it’s a normal part of learning and life, and how to be more resilient and confident of her strengths 💪🏼 Thank you so much Fiona! 😘 What are your kids loving these school holidays? ” Amy Zempalis

“Hi Fiona

I have been meaning to contact you to let you know just how much (name withheld) enjoyed your course. I was a little uncertain as to whether she would enjoy it to be honest. She can be a determined little thing and she’s quite fixed on what she does well and what she doesn’t like, especially when it comes to art. When she came home on the first afternoon, she claimed it was the best day of her life. She ran through every part of the course, explaining in detail how the brain works, what to do if you make a mistake and proudly showed us her little clay bear. The second day, she was equally enthusiastic. She’s hung up her profile picture proudly and has the scrap book on her desk. This course was such an unexpected surprise for me and I have been sharing this story far and wide. Little girls often have a really issue being ‘wrong’. For me the pride in being a Mistake Maker is such an empowering concept and I wish I’d learnt it a little earlier in life.” Don’t be surprised if your course is inundated next holidays! “ Kelly Hasluck

This workshop will develop children’s problem solving, creativity and appreciation of the natural world.

In the afternoon, kids will discover how artists use science to create. In this workshop kids will discover the magical science behind perspective and optical illusions to answer the question: How do I make an object look like it is a long way away in a flat picture? They will make scratchboard and discover the intriguing process as they make marbled paper which they will make into a journal out of recycled materials to fill with their creative and curious ideas.

Not only will your children learn some new art skills they will also grow their appreciation of nature and science. They will explore how they can adopt a growth mindset and look at natural objects as part of making and keep trying as they learn tricky skills and deal with unpredictable results.
