WARWICKSHIRE County Council’s Heritage and Culture are working with Warwickshire Libraries this Easter to inspire families and challenge them to get creative.
‘Nature Patterns’ event arrives at Rugby Library on Thursday 5 April, from 11am – 12.30pm. At this crafty session, families are encouraged to get inspired by nature and items from the natural history collection like fossils and animals to create patterns to decorate a butterfly.
Man-made patterns from the past will be the feature of the ‘Pop Patterns’ event at the library on Thursday 12 April 2012, from 11am – 12.30pm. Mums and dads might recognise the wall paper samples from the 70s. Families will be able to make their own printing blocks and frame their own creations.
These events are suitable for children aged 4-12 years and cost £2.50 per child, £1 for Under 5s. Tickets must be booked in advance from the library, call 01926 410410 or drop in to Stratford library to buy your ticket. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Jane Commane, Learning and Community Engagement Officer for Heritage and Culture at the county council said: ‘The events this Easter are going to be great fun for families and we are looking forward to seeing how the collections inspire them to be creative.”
