Ready for Lift Off!

Living Magazines Claire Gillespie - Oglee Poglee Founder

Berkhamsted-based children’s craft specialist, Oglee Poglee has announced the launch of a new Creative Heroes Club, aimed at offering arts and crafts fun to all the family. The Club will run quarterly at the Berkhamsted Civic Centre, with the inaugural event taking place on Saturday 17th November.

Targeted at families with children ages 4 and up, the sessions will allow parents and children to unleash their creativity and imagination with no rules!

The November event is themed ‘Planet Create’. The story goes like this…poor Oglee Pip (a curious yellow creature) has crash-landed while on a trip to a nearby planet to visit a friend. His rocket ship has smashed to smithereens so he’ll need to start a new life there! It’s up to the good people of Berkhamsted to help Oglee Pip bring his new planet to life and make it feel more like home.

Oglee Poglee founder, Claire Gillespie, is passionate about encouraging children to let their imaginations run free, whether that’s building a castle out of cardboard or sticking as many sequins on a handmade crown as possible: ‘Oglee Poglee was born when I discovered the joy of creating with my own children. To me, there’s nothing better than finding fun ways to create and craft together. I hope lots of local families will come and help Oglee Pip out on his space mission.’

To sign up for the first Creative Heroes event on Saturday 17th November 2018 visit There will be 2 x sessions from 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm, costing £10 per child.
