About this Event

Santa's Workshop is truly a magical and unique experience primarily for children aged 3 up to 9 years, younger children may also enjoy the experience as well as the adults too!  Helping the elves in Santa’s Workshop will be a memorable Christmas occasion for all. 


The journey starts with a short walk for through the gardens, accompanied at all times by their guardian/ parent/ adult. The children collect lost gifts for Santa en route to the workshop. Being accompanied by a parent/guardian, the children will head to "Santa's Workshop" (the Mill) where they will meet Santa and his working elves and will be involved with the Christmas preparations. There are various activities for them to enjoy, along with loading the sleigh and meeting Santa, then checking to see if their name is on Santa's Scroll.

Each child will receive a small gift and meet the Candy Elf, where they are also offered a traditional clementine.  They will mix reindeer food and help the elves with lots of festive activities.  Santa aprons are provided. From the workshop the children head to the art & craft area where they will make a craft item to take home.

• Each event lasts approximately 60 minutes.

extended break

We’re sad to announce the inevitable news that we’re shutting down the Pilates Works Office and
Pilates Studios 1 & 2 at Kersey Mill as from close of business on Friday 20th March, until further notice.


We’ve done our absolute best to hang on in there for as long as we can, but with more and more restrictions being put in place, now is the time to step back. Our team have been absolutely amazing doing their utmost to keep a sense of normality and to continue being there for you all.


Over the coming weeks or months, however difficult, we promise to keep in touch through the power of Pilates, so please keep an eye out on your emails especially your spam folder, in case they sneak in there.

We are a close-knit and unique community and we’ll all get through this passing storm and come out stronger on the other side. 


So, take a deep breath, keep calm, stay well and see you on the mat soon!

Glass and Craft 


so whats instore

Stacy says that although the concept of the glass painting studio is similar to the ceramic cafés which can be found around Suffolk where adults and children can paint on pottery, Glass & Craft will provide a different experience offering a wide and exciting range of glassware and pre-templated designs to choose from.


“This means that, from novices to the really experienced, people of all ages can create a unique design as a memory, a present or something personal.”


There will always be help on hand to advise and assist.


The studio will also be offering Decopatch to make exciting mementos by sticking patterned paper on to the pre-formed 3-D shapes of animals, ornaments and lots more.  Stacy says that Decopatch is a brilliant and easy craft designed to be stimulating, particularly for small children.


Everyone is welcome, come along individually or as a group


In addition to the glass painting studio and selling their own items, Glass & Craft will also be selling a wide range of hand-made products from other local talented craft makers. Fellow local craft makers interested in selling crafts from the new Kersey Mill shop can contact Stacy or Richard for more details.
