Father's Day art at The Laboratory

Last weekend children of all ages joined us at The Laboratory to make some personal and special gifts for some very lucky Daddies! As promised I have posted this blog after Father's Day as we didn't want to give any of the lovely presents made secrets away!!!
Our weekend workshops run between 12:00noon and 4:30pm and offer families the opportunity to spend a bit of quality time together whilst getting creative in a fun environment. This Saturday was no exception and children and adults enjoyed creating a paper craft banner, a beautiful Fathers Day Card and painting a wooden key rack using acrylic paint.
Here is what we got up to
Working hard to make a banner for Dad

Once the triangles were decorated they needed to be spaced out ready to be attached to a piece of ribbon

This is what we like to see at The Laboratory, a busy working table

Making a rainbow coloured Father's Day card

Getting a little bit of a helping hand from mum
 And here are some of the beautiful finished pieces
Some children added paper craft cut outs and embellishments to complete their designs

We love this simple but stunning design painted using acrylic paint

I wonder what is the message in this bottle under the sea!

A lovely sparkly keyrack
