School Holiday Fun!

Welcome to Spring! These school holidays The Riddoch will be offering a range of fun online activities that you can do from home as part of our COVID-19 online campaign, #riddochathome.

Please keep an eye on our Facebook page, Instagram and our activities & events page for the following simple tutorials to follow along with:

Spring themed fabric collage
Using scrap fabric and PVA glue, layer and arrange a botanic artwork original.

Animal & Monster planters
Using old drink bottles create a little monster or cute animal planter. Once you’ve finished creating the planter just add the perfect plant, keep it for yourself or gift it to someone special!

Felt wall hanger
Bright easy and fun! Inject some spring colour into your home by making your own felt fabric wall hanger.

Flower pressing
Celebrate spring! Explore your garden and find some beautiful blooms that you can press and turn into an artwork to keep forever!
