More than 100 children and their families decorated ceramic egg cups and wooden bird boxes as part of free activities held in the Vancouver Quarter on Easter Saturday.
The shopping centre teamed up with Paint Me Ceramics and Craft Studio to host the workshops on April 4 next to Costa Coffee and opposite Wilkinson on New Conduit Street. Children who took part in the bird box workshop were also invited to collect a free bag of bird feed from Wilkinson.
“Our workshops on Easter Saturday proved very popular,” centre manager Abbie Panks said. “We’ve had some excellent feedback from parents who brought their children along and clearly this event was a big hit with families.
“It was wonderful to see so many children have fun and get crafty. The finished egg cups and wooden bird boxes looked great with the children using their imaginations to come up with some wonderful designs.
“It was also pleasing to see those who attended with the children, whether it be parents, grandparents and siblings, were positively interacting and involved with what was happening.”
She added: “A huge thank you to Paint Me Ceramics and Craft Studio for running these fantastic workshops and to Wilkinson for giving bird food to the children who decorated the wooden bird boxes.
“There will be plenty of other free events in the Vancouver Quarter this year, including the return of our very popular Halloween event and Christmas Grotto. Follow us on Twitter, like our page on Facebook and keep an eye on our website for details of events when they are confirmed.”
