'Create with Cadw' workshops

During the Easter holidays Eden Education Centre has been on the road as we've had the pleasure of working with CADW as part of their 'Create with CADW' workshops.

Cadw contacted us to see if it would be possible if we could rebuild Caerphilly Castle from Lego, we had limitations placed on us such as limited bricks 3000-5000, it had to be built with children between the ages of 8-13 and it had to be built over 3 days!
We knew that the challenge wouldn't be easy but we knew it would be so much fun. we were also asked to host workshops for all to get involved, to our amazement the tickets sold out in less than an hour and all workshops were full.

Each workshop included taking part in the big build of the castle, then moving onto StoryStarter where children and adults could design their own story and place it into a story board, then the final task was to build catapults! The workshops were packed full of fun, learning about our heritage and encouraging imagination and creativity!
