In #BastardoHostel we have already activated the Christmas mode ON and we want to share this spirit of peace, love and tinsel with all of you. This time we have prepared a series of manual workshops for children and families where we will prepare Christmas decorations with the most humble materials but with a spectacular result. The main ingredient will always be fun, guaranteed! Once again we invite the little ones of the house to exploit their imagination and creativity with the funniest plans for the whole family in our hall for these special days until the end of 2018. The workshops for families and children of Bastardo are practical and 100% playful. The idea is to have a fun time with the family and, by the way, have one more excuse to enjoy this incredible space that is the ground floor of Bastardo Hostel. Several workshops will be held every week from December 15th , so if you run out of space, don’t worry, it won’t be the only workshop, we will propose a new workshop every week for you to have a great time.
How the workshop will be organized
*All Christmas craft workshops have two schedules divided by age, from 4 to 6 years old at 11:00 h and from 7 to 12 years old at 12:15 h. Children between the ages of 4 and 6 must be accompanied by an adult.
**The digital music workshop also has two schedules divided by age, from 5 to 8 years old at 11:00 h and from 9 to 12 years old at 12:15 h. Children between the ages of 5 and 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
At the beginning of the workshop we propose the activity to be carried out with the necessary explanations and examples, we present the materials and then each child works at his own pace, with the help of an adult in the case of the youngest children. The educator will be available at all times to resolve doubts and assist in the proper implementation of proposals.
December 15th: “Sewing Christmas decorations”
We will start with a first workshop on Christmas decorations for the tree, or to create a garland. Our only materials for this activity will be wool and cardboard. It seems simple, and it is, but the results will surprise you. Sewing techniques, polygons and Christmas, all at once! In Bastardo, we like to risk 😉
December 22th: “Introduction and experimentation with digital music”
In collaboration with Inted we have organized this workshop to raise awareness about new technologies and the great allies they can be. Creativity is the basic instrument for this music workshop in which musical composition takes shape with the qualities of sound, rhythm, melody, harmony, and structure or form. The main components will be active listening, improvisation, creation of rhythmic and harmonic patterns, recording of loops, etc. The younger ones, from 5 to 8 years old, will sharpen their ears well with littlebits synthesizers. They will learn to listen and we will study how sound is generated, from noise to music. With makeymakey we will turn any object into a musical instrument, from bananas to our own body.
For the not-so-small 9 to 12 year olds, we’ll go a little further, and use the Sonic Pi environment. Sonic Pi was originally developed to support programming and music lessons in schools, and the motto is: no mistakes, just opportunities. In the process of experimentation, you can improvise both really fresh and absolutely discordant sounds, but the only thing that will matter is how to reprogram them in order to let yourself be carried away by the rhythm.
December 27th: “My star”
Already in the middle of the Christmas vortex, you are invited to children and parents, to make an escape to Bastardo’s hall to create our own Christmas star. It can be as big and bright as you want. We’ll start by creating our star with small branches and sticks. After that there is no script, only many materials to create without limit. Snow, wool, glitter, pom-poms, pineapples, pipe cleaners, etc. and, above all, absolute freedom for each star to be unique. Are you going to lose it?
January 3rd: “Has anyone seen a gnome?”
A legion of little gnomes will invade our hall. They have come from the cold northern lands in search of warmer places and intend to camp in Bastard!
In this workshop we will build our own gnomes with socks and little more. Yeah, I’m afraid they’re as cuddly as they look in the picture. You can’t stay without your Christmas gnome, you need a new home.
