“Letters, journals, drawing, water-colour and so much more”
For children aged between 7-11 living in Powys, Wales.
Amazing news! Lara’s Travelling Adventures is now able to provide a live workshop every Wednesday in August 2021. With the help of Welsh Government Funding, we are able to provide hands on, face to face workshops for local children- completely free of charge!
What we are providing?
A free interactive workshop with a focus on writing letters, journaling, poetry, drawing and watercolour, as a way of developing and building creative skills for the future. The workshop will help children to boost their confidence, focusing on mental health, well- being, raise self- awareness, while connecting with nature and likeminded peers of similar age. Hands on and engaging.
Booking is essential, please don’t just turn up without booking. We have limited spaces due to Covid restrictions and adhering to a maximum of 6 children per group.

About me (workshop provider)
I work at a lovely local primary school. I work in the office 4 days a week and help out as a Teaching Assistant one day a week. I really enjoy interacting with children. I am so thrilled that I was granted funding, which has enabled me to set up workshops, which I hope, will guide children towards being creative in their everyday lives.
I love anything to do with art and creativity. I try to do something creative every day.
I look forward to meeting you in August 2021. So, please, book now to secure a space for your child/ children.
A massive thank you to everyone in the council who has worked hard to distribute the Welsh Government grant funding, so children can learn new skills in a fun way.
If you have a friend, who you think may be interested in our workshop, please share this page with them and spread the news.
Hope to see you soon!
