Fabulous programme of half-term activities at Taurus Crafts

Where: Taurus Crafts, Lydney, Gloucestershire, GL15 6BU

When: Saturday, February 15, to Sunday, February 23

An eclectic mix for all budgets is on offer at Taurus Crafts this half-term to keep families amused and entertained.

The talented makers and performers at Taurus Crafts are set to put on a fabulous programme of activities to keep families amused and entertained. With activities every day from February 15 to 23, there will be something for everyone to have a go at.

The mix of activities includes free performances by professional puppeteer Lullaby Leesa, Arnie Kazam's magic show is back by popular demand after sell-out performances throughout 2019, as well as the phenomenon of FOD Rocks. 

The founder of FOD Rocks, Amy Sampson, will be running a painting session so why not decorate a pebble or two and then hide them somewhere at Taurus Crafts or in the Forest of Dean for someone to find?

For those who are looking to create keepsakes of their visit to take home, visitors can try a traditional craft experience with stone mason Carrie Horwood who will guide them through the process of using genuine mason tools in her half-hour stone carving activity.

A spokesman for Taurus Crafts said: "Our pottery painting activity will be running on both weekends during the school break.

"It is now such an established part of the local scene that we are getting the second generation of makers coming along with their children, who enjoyed the activity themselves when they were young."

With more activities added to programme frequently, it's well worth following Taurus Crafts' Facebook page and checking for website updates.
