Looking for a fun and rewarding creative activity you can do from home?

Join this video workshop with author and illustrator Tai Snaith and create a make-believe world from your dreams!​

Tai leads you step-by-step through painting a background with watercolours, then building an imaginary landscape using cut paper. 

Suitable for 9–12 year olds, their parents and carers.

What you'll need:

  • Two sheets of A3 watercolour paper
  • An A3 piece of cardboard (an old box is fine – big enough to fit one of the pieces of paper)
  • A simple set of watercolours
  • Paint brushes, preferably in small, medium and large sizes
  • Water for washing your paint brushes
  • Scissors
  • PVA glue and stick to apply
  • A hairdryer for drying your paintwork.

This recorded workshop is supported by Gandel Philanthropy. Pauline Gandel Children’s Quarter, supported by Gandel Philanthropy, is a purpose-built space for children and families to read, learn and play at the Library, with an associated program of activities.

This original content will be available until Sunday 12 July.
