For ages 5-11+

Morwenna Catt is an artist, whose crafty workshops delight children at the festival every year. This year Morwenna brings you three very special “lockdown” craft activities, all using materials that you are likely to have at home.

In this crafty workshop, learn how to make a swashbuckling pirate ship, fit for plundering the seven seas!

Make sure you gather all of your materials together before you start! Remember, you can pause the video at any time, and if you’re using sharp objects like scissors, be careful and ask a grown up to help.
