The Newhampton Arts Centre’s half term activities this week saw Wolverhampton children learn Gelli Plate Printing.
The half term activities which also included pastel drawing, bird box making and scratch art, were led by some of Wolverhampton’s leading artists Lindsay Pritchard, Jacky Fellows, Kathleen Fabre & Ruth Radcliffe. The free YoWolves activities funded by Wolverhampton Council took place in the studio block rooms at the centre during half term which also included a hot nutritious meal from the on site cafe, The Arts Cafe.
Tuesday’s activity led by Jacky, saw children making their own concertina book using eucalyptus leaves, ferns and small flowers to print designs on tissue paper. They were then able to build up colourful prints with acrylic paint layers.
Take a look at some of the beautiful creations below.
The family fun doesn’t end there.
