Whittle + Weave at Wittunga

December 19, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Spend a morning outdoors at our scenic Nature Play SA headquarters as our team guides your nature players in the arts of weaving and whittling!


Children will be empowered to whittle their own sticks and craft a naturally woven creation to take home. This special event is targeted at children aged 6+ years and is adapted from our popular school program.Our beautiful loose parts bell tent will also feature on the day, along with an area for construction and free play with natural loose parts for younger children accompanying registered siblings on the day. You’re welcome to bring a picnic and explore the Botanic Garden after your session!


Please note: places for participants and accompanying siblings are limited for this event and tickets are essential. Here are a couple of things that may come in handy when making your booking:

  • This event is capped at 30 children for whittling and weaving to ensure small group sizes for your children to learn and play. Bookings for accompanying younger siblings are also limited to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of attending families
  • Tickets must be booked prior to the event [no ticket purchases will be available on the day]
  • Tickets for the whittle and weave session are $18 per child. Tickets for younger children accompanying their participating siblings are $5 per child [includes full access to natural loose parts play and construction area]
  • While our Nature Play educators and staff will be present at this event, attending children remain the responsibility of their parents / carers. Adults and children under 1 year accompanying registered children do not require a ticket
  • Tickets are only valid for the day you have booked for
  • Specific directions and other handy info will be provided upon booking!
