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.

I visited with family with ages ranging from 7 -50.A really great place for everyone. Entrance fees were very reasonable and the children did some lovely crafts, making things they could bring away with them.
