Very interesting for all the family. Several Workshops for children, with small handcrafted items to product by themselves. Kind welcoming, high deal with children, not boring.

Dropped in with our two young children. Various 'stations' for the kids to try out calligraphy, candle making, stone carving etc. Good for slightly older kids able to able to focus with minimal input from the somewhat overwhelmed teachers.
