Model making for children

Abadonna Laser Cut Models is proud to be a supporter and sponsor of the Traralgon Men’s Shed and Woodworking Inc’s Children’s Academy of Model Making.

The Academy is the brain child of Master Model Maker Zibby, and is a collaboration between the Model Maker’s Workshop of Traralgon Men’s Shed and the Liddiard Road Primary School. The collaboration has been in place for two years.

Some 16 children spend 2 hours per week during school hours to attend a program of model making using laser cut cardboard kits. Skill learned include tool and workplace safety, plan reading, following instructions, cutting, forming and gluing parts, colour mixing and painting.

Teachers, parents and students can see the benefits accruing from their participation in the Academy.

The fostering of these skills and passing on a love of model making is important to Abadonna.

Should your school, or Men’s shed like to establish a model making activity or academy, Abadonna is well placed to assist. We offer laser cut card kits suitable for a variety of ages and interest, together with tools, glues and expertise in model making, plus lesson planning and safety information.

Please contact us to discuss how Abadonna can assist you with any of your model making ambitions.

But let's leave the last word to Bill, principal of Liddiard Road Primary School.
