For this term's Holiday Programme: Arabian Nights we are inspired by the Middle Eastern region, with different activities to choose from each day!

In these classes, we create mosaic tiles, lanterns and mats, and decorate houses and deserts with techniques including painting, sculpting, collage, drawing and more!

All classes take place 10am–1pm in the Learning Centre.

For 6-12 Year Olds:

  • Monday 9 July: Design a unique, circular clay tile, inspired by the beautiful mosaic patterns of Morocco, inset into a diamond card frame and finished with chalk pastels.
  • Tuesday 10 July: Sculpt and paint a desert scene with inset clay relief buildings collaged with exotic palms and nomadic camels.
  • Wednesday 11 July: Paint, collage and decorate a multi-layered 3D cardboard house inspired by Middle Eastern desert houses.
  • Thursday 12 July: Make a Moroccan-inspired lantern with ornate geometric windows and bright cellophane hues glowing with a LED light.
