Chinese New Year - Year of the Pig

We spent a week working at Erewash Museum in Ilkeston creating artwork for Chinese New Year.
We worked with a number of schools from the local area, Bennerley School, Chaucer School, Stanton Common School and Brackenfield School. We made red strip lanterns and money purses decorated with pig designs.
On the Saturday we had a busy afternoon working with families creating lanterns with cellophane and LED lights for the procession held at Dallimore School in Kirk Hallam. It was a great session with around 100 people attending.

We have been working with the young people who meet at Madeley Centre, in Normanton.
