Each Christmas I am commissioned by the Savill Garden to devise and deliver a couple of family workshops. It's a really lovely 2hr session where a £20 ticket pays for one adult and up to two children to work together to create a large scale festive sculpture. I love teaching these sessions as the kids are so excited, and they love the opportunity to spend time with a parent/ grandparent working together to make a giant sculpture. So far we've made Christmas trees, Father Christmas's, reindeer hobby-horses and this year it was snowmen.
The snowmen ended up about 4ft high, and they looked great as a group with the noses and eyes giving them each a rather different expression and personality. Participants left their sculptures to dry overnight, before returning the next day to collect them and take them home (presumably in a JCB/ lorry as they were enormous!)
Have a WONDERFUL Christmas, next time I write it will already be over! x
