Summer 2007 journal
On Tuesday 31st July my youngest Son, Harry, and I attended a workshop at Chatteris museum entitled 'Remarkable Rubbish' run by Fred White. The cost of the two hour session was just £3 and it was inspirational. Fred showed the children how to make 'creepy crawlies' out of cling film, computer wire and various beads and yarns - the results were fantastic!
Fred then went on to show Harry how to make masks from old cardboard boxes.
The children were asked to draw a picture of their creations before leaving, something for Fred's archive. It was a great way to spend a morning and Harry wasn't the only one who enjoyed himself!
Details of the next workshop at Chatteris Museum, 'Nature's Handbag', can be found here.
