Half Term Marble Run @ Arboretum School

We had a 3-day frenzy of designing and creating, to make a giant marble run with 60 children at Arboretum School over the February half term holiday.

We used cardboard tubes and boxes, plastic bottles, canes and lots of tape to create it.

We had a mass marble run at the end of the project and captured it on video showing the path the marble took across the whole length of the school hall. The video will be played to the rest of the school next week.

Here a couple of images of the part of the run

Ladies Creating Together

We have had a busy few weeks working with the ladies from the Guru Nanak Istri Sabha group based at the Indian Community Centre in Derby. We have created woven fabric bowls, batik designs, textured clay bowls, and printed tea towels.
We have all enjoyed working and chatting together, even singing sometimes!
We will exhibiting some of the work at International Women's Day on Saturday 7 March in the market place. The ladies will be joining us to create some bunting. 
Come along and join in too.
