Get crafty these holidays
Ingenuity is expected to pour from youngsters who attend a Crafty Kids Holiday Programme from July 22 to 26 at the Helensville Art Centre.
They will be making crafts ranging from salt dough sculpting, spirelli mobiles and pebble and shell picture frames on an easel to Iris paper folding and punch art making decorative animals and flowers.
Their work will be encouraged by tutor Diana Ashworth.
''Diana has a quiet serenity, sees the best in all children and brings a wide range of well thought-out and interesting projects for kids to achieve,'' centre co-ordinator Pauline Denton says.
The classes are from 10am to noon. All ages are welcome but participants children 6 and under need a helper or carer.
