Tinkertown is a playful place-making event supporting children and families to design and build their own structures from
scrap timber. Visitors are provided with training and tools and are free to play, learn and discover while developing their creativity
and construction skills.

The open nature of Tinkertown offers children and their families the opportunity to explore and experience a different kind of play;
it enables children to investigate their imagination and ideas, begin to understand basic engineering principles, learn about risk
(within a managed situation), build physical and social skills and produce a piece of work which is inhabitable, autonomous and of
their own making.

This event is primarily aimed at the community of Wester Hailes and pupils of Canal View Primary School. This is a bookable event. Please either complete this application form via https://goo.gl/forms/xPG1nwJ6RNmedvcF3 or contact Helena Barrett at WHALE Arts on [email protected] or 0131 458 3267.

The event is funded by The Happold Foundation and facilitated in partnership with Canal View Primary and local community groups WHALE Arts, With Kids, Edible Estates and Tasting Change Wester Hailes
