Half Term Workshops in Blackwell Parish
Updated: Mar 8, 2020
Greater Creative ran two full days of workshops with children aged between 4-11 years old. A total of 38 children attended over the two days! The first workshop was with Lisa Green who helped the groups create their very own robot wind chimes all of the children loved making the robots from up-cyled materials. The children were encouraged to design and then create their robot from scratch meaning each robot was very different.
Our second workshop was with Jayne and Laura, who helped the children made dream catchers through weaving various materials to create their designs. Some of the group created their own techniques to weave and construct them with amazing results! The group also had time to make bird feeders using apples and seeds. The children were all proud of their creations and excited to hang them in their gardens! Given the recent cold weather we bet the birds were pretty excited too!
Artist Lisa Green had this to say following the workshops; "It was lovely to see some of the children that had been on the Christmas workshops coming back to work with us again. They all seemed to have a good time and had lots to take home. Some of the children's ideas were better than ours! We learned from them! A wonderful way to spend two afternoons during a wet and cold Feb half term."
