Arts & crafts in autumn 2019

Beaver - an excellent timber engineer.
Arts & crafts from 28 September until 20 November 2019.

 

Beavers are the biggest native rodents in Europe. Currently there are 3000 beavers living in Switzerland. What else do we know about beavers? We invite you during autumn holidays to learn more about these impressive gnawers.

Decorate a chocolate box with a beaver motif on top, use small tree branches for the beaver’s dam, as well as faux fur and artificial leather, to handicraft a naturalistic looking beaver. These who are interested will learn more about the beaver’s life. Did you know that beavers prepare themselves for the winter period? Now the only thing your chocolate box is missing is winter-food for your beaver. You can pick your favorite chocolate bar out of our extended Chocolat Frey assortment in our Boutique.

In the price of CHF 5.- the chocolate box, the chocolate bar and the handicraft materials are included.
