Art Attack – Easter Activities Part I

Art Attack – Easter Activities Part I

Not sure what to do with the kids this Easter? Keen to avoid the usual pitfalls of not enough stimulation apart from that massive sugar rush from too much chocolate? Then help is at hand with this nifty guide to artistic activities taking place on the Isle of Wight this April. Here are some simple steps to unleashing those crafty kids…

Children are invited to create a decorative seasonal table decoration using natural materials on both Wednesday April 11th and Thursday April 12th from 2pm till 3.30pm at the WWLP Conservatory in Freshwater. The suggested age range is 5-11 years and children must be accompanied. The session is FREE, but places are limited and must be booked by calling the WWLP office on (01983) 759779 or emailing

Clay Day on Thursday April 12th at Jubilee stores for ages 8 to 12yrs. This is an Easter-themed workshop where kids can make a seasonal work of art from clay. Work will be glazed, fired and ready to collect two weeks after the workshop.

Lose yourself for a few hours decorating your very own ceramic egg cup at Chessell Pottery for just £6.50 (including glazing and firing) and there are Easter-themed decorations for you to use. Or you could make an Easter gift for a loved one at Chessell Pottery, which is a fantastic place for a spot of shopping while the little ones paint – with a wide array of Emma Bridgewater pottery and an amazing toy shop. And definitely make time to sample their award winning cream teas – they must be the biggest scones on the Isle of Wight.
