Kids Workshops

The Young Bucks Kids Programme

This summer, just as the school holidays hit Johannesburg, we will be running a 4 day kids holiday workshop programme to get those creative minds ready for the holidays!

A word on our facilitators

Young Bucks workshops are facilitated by the Young Bucks team – who come with years of acquired skill and experience in workshop facilitation and teaching. We also put together workshop programmes with a host of collaborators, who each bring unique skills and experience to our studio. Stephan Erasmus is a South African visual artist whose work focuses heavily on the form of the book as an artistic medium. Stephan has been bookbinding for over 20 years, and has conducted numerous workshops over this time. During her 30 year professional career as a writer, sustainability consultant, strategist and marketer, Charlotte Middleton focussed on blending strategic thinking with highly original problem solving. Her natural affinity with a wide range of people enables her passion for mentoring and coaching. She now works as a full time artist, illustrator and writer in Johannesburg.


Participation fees

Participation fees are R300.00 per child per workshop, and R450.00 for an adult and child together.

For the full week programme, the fee per child is R1000.00 and R1200.00 for an adult and child together.

The Kids’ Holiday Programme

Kids’ Marbling with Stephan – 10 December 2019

On the 10th of December 2019 Stephan, along with the Young Bucks team, will be leading a super fun and kid friendly marbling session. The beautiful marbled paper that comes from this could be used to create a holiday journal on the following day,  Christmas cards, or to create wrapping paper to wrap presents.

Make Your Own Holiday Journal – 11 December 2019

Join the team in the Young Bucks studio and make your very own holiday journal! Choose your papers, and customise the cover with incredible cut out designs. This journal will ensure that this holiday is one to remember. A fun idea would be to use the marbled paper from Kids’ Marbling as the cover for your new journal.

Illustration, Drawing and Storytelling with Charlotte – 12 December 2019

Join artist and illustrator Charlotte Middleton as she leads you through different methods of creative expression in your new holiday journal!


Pop-Up Christmas Cards – 13 December 2019

Learn paper mechanics and pop-up techniques to create incredible pop-up Christmas cards for your family and friends!
