Children forage for creative materials in eco-art workshop

Creative children scoured the grounds of Braywick Nature Centre in Maidenhead this week to forage for artistic materials.

Half-term activity session 'eco-art' was held on Monday and Tuesday afternoon for children aged between four and 11 at the centre in Hibbert Road.

The afternoon began with time spent locating natural materials from the wooded area, before the children were left to make their environmentally friendly masterpieces with additional recyclable materials.

"The children made some beautiful creations," said the centre's education ranger Debra Frankiewicz.

She added: "There was a mermaid and a snowman and some of the children made a wonderful horse out of leaves, twigs and branches."
