Kingston Young Carers Introductory Workshop

intro workshop kingston young carers

It was wonderful to watch the children who were visibly engaged and happy and wanted more. It spanned the ages I suspect the supervisors would also have liked a go. Viv’s workshop, such a simple idea, take a flower/ stem and take pieces and arrange then look through a kaleidoscope you have created and then take a photo and transfer photos to computer and look at the images creating entertaining names, imaginations fuelled and as they repeated the exercise a couple of times including drawing their own designs to view through the kaleidoscope they started increasing the sophistication/ creativity with which they arranged their drawings and flowers and the way they took their photos. Eventually all their images will be used to create a group design which will then become the display fabric and from which they will also make products.
