Israel is bursting with so many things to do – for adults and children alike – and LoveLoveIsrael has selected the most highly recommended workshops around Israel that have all been tried and tested!
As Summer approaches it is advisable to book your family or group into a workshop soon to make sure you get the date you want as they will fill up! Also keep in mind that while some of these workshops and by no means cheap, they usually provide entertainment for a range of ages and physical ability, use high quality materials, sharing their skills for sometimes many hours in very intimate groups, and send you home with something to be proud of – so they are worth the investment for a truly special activity!
