Join us for creative family fun as part of this year’s Bow Road Winter Market! Take a break from the bustling stalls to explore new textures, colours and –just in time for the festive season! Stamp, scratch, be bold with your designs, and take home handcrafted mementos to gift to others.
In this session, families will learn to engrave a simple or complex design onto polystyrene blocks. Using a range of festive coloured inks, brighten your designs and print them onto cards or brown paper. All materials are provided, but families are encouraged to bring old gift paper to upcycle.
This workshop is suitable for 4 to 11-year-olds (and adults too of course). Younger children can create simple placement or repeat prints whilst older children/adults can develop their prints further by rotating and overlaying their designs – making them more dynamic.
Bow Families is a series of free, drop-in family art workshops that take place on the last Sunday of every month in the Bow Arts Courtyard. These sessions are a wonderful opportunity for local families to get creative and try something new! Each session is led by a Bow Arts’ Artist and all materials are provided.
