Dream and Make at Home

Dream and Make at Home

We’ve been missing the regular Dream and Make workshops that artist and educator Laura Phillimore leads at Spike Island – and we think that it’s now more important than ever to Dream and Make.

So, we’ve invited Laura to create an activity pack that you can download for free. Laura has filled the pack to the brim with ideas and inspiration for making artwork at home using very simple materials.  This activity pack is suitable for all ages, but especially well suited to 5–11 year olds
