Thank you to all those 11-14 year olds who attended the watercolour workshop in our local library.

We took the holiday programme theme of ‘Lost Worlds’ to generate ideas and spent a few hours working on individual pieces. The group learnt how to use masking fluid and some emergency ‘delete’ tricks in order to manage the sometimes unpredictable medium of watercolour.

It was wonderful to see so many innovative and varied approaches. I hope you will all continue to experiment with your own ways of painting with watercolours.

Book Jacket Workshop for 5-11 year olds.

Book Jacket Workshop for 5-11 year olds.

A big thank you to all the children who came to the book jacket workshop in our local library. They all took the challenge of creating an illustrated book cover and in a very short space of time, produced some beautiful pieces. They used silhouette paper cuts, collage, markers and coloured pencils. We focused on three classic fairy tales; Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Bears and Beauty and The Beast. We had a very imaginative group and many children made covers for other stories and even their own stories where they had to think about creating their own text.
