There are 4 Summer Workshops for children being held in the gallery this summer on Wednesdays from 11am-1pm, these have been funded by the Friends and The Arts Society Kennet & Swindon and have proved very popular.
Here's a copy of the flyer:
As you can see, we've had prehistoric puppets
and some photos I took of the prehistoric people being dressed up rather interestingly and standing in front of their dwellings.
It's a shame it's no longer possible to photograph the children thoroughly enjoying what they were doing, but here's one holding up the puppets
I also took some photos last week of the fossils children made from modelling clay
again it was a case of 'hands only'
and with this child, they thought I wanted to photograph their hands!
The next workshop is the one sponsored by the Arts Society and encouraging children to build colourful landscape pictures.
