Half Term Online Craft Session

9 February 2021

You are invited to take part in our February Half Term online craft session.

On Thursday 18th February 10am.

* Email for your Zoom invitation link before 5pm Wed 17th Feb *

This time I’m going to introduce you to a different way of painting pictures and leave you to experiment yourself once the session is over. I’d love to see what you get up to, so please send me a photo of your master pieces.

As the Museum is currently closed for lockdown, you will need to provide the materials for this. But don’t worry they are easy to get hold of. However, if you are struggling to find/afford any of the materials, please let me know and we can find things for you from St Barbe.

You will need...

  • Kids paint in a variety of colours (red, green, blue and yellow and then anything else you have/like)
  • Paint brushes
  • A cloth
  • A pencil
  • Sticky tape
  • White paper (A4 size or larger)
  • Brown crayon
  • The vase shape hole sheet (included in email) printed out and cut out – if you do not have a printer then a rough drawing of it will be fine
  • Celery bottom (one per family is enough, but they will need to share it)
  • Banana (peel on and cut in half or thirds, a piece per child)
  • Broccoli (one floret per child)
  • Corn on the cob (cut into enough pieces for one per child)
  • Lemon or tangerine (cut into quarter chunks, one chunk per child)
  • A tray to keep the painted fruit and veg off the table

If you are unable to attend, don’t worry, here are some instructions for you to follow: print examplesvase template

And finally, if you have any spare pennies to help us continue to provide craft sessions like these (both online and in person, hopefully in the future) then please pop over to our donations page and give us what you can. We are a charity and therefore run on your kind donations

Any questions/problems send me an email. Please don’t call the Museum as it is currently closed and only manned sporadically, so there maybe no one there to answer your call.

I look forward to meeting you in half term.

Kind regards
