A series of FREE weekly online tasters, one of our tasters this week is a family taster Eco Art - Make your own paint.

Old clothes or an apron.

Paper / card / cardboard. (old boxes will be fine)

Some spices – like turmeric or paprika or curry powder.



Shiny packaging (crisp packets, sweet or biscuit wrappers)
