Winter Activities at The Faerie Shop
As the days become shorter and colder, the winter faeries rejoice, for they love cold weather, rain and snow! Our flower faerie friends prefer to be tucked up indoors so that they can keep warm.
During the June school holidays, The Faerie Shop will be offering a range of fun activities inspired by the winter faeries - but from within the lovely warm buildings of the Salamanca Arts Centre. We've lots of in-store classes as well as faerie ballet and a colouring competition. We'll also be offering a range of faerie school classes, including making faerie princess tiaras and princely crowns; painting and decorating unicorns; winter wishes and we'll even make winter gingerbread houses!
To book for any of our faerie and pixie school classes or obtain more information, please phone 03 6224 8731.
