Window art craft activites

Make art at home to take part in this year's festival programme!

This year we are teaming up with some fantastic artists and organisations to bring you some exciting art activities, that you can do at home for free to take part in this year's festival, using your windows to share your creations with the world! There is something to suit every age and ability. You can use materials you already have at home, or buy our 'Window Art Activity Boxes' containing all of the materials and guidance you need to carry out one of the activities at home.

 

It's been a really tough year for everyone! Now more than ever we have come to realise just how important the arts are for our mental health and well being. We have teamed up with Refuweegee to make sure the families they support are not left out of the festivities. Some of the proceeds from the sale of the art boxes will go towards donating the same boxes to Refuweegee so that they can distribute art materials to those in need.

Turn your windows into a stained glass masterpiece for all to see with this easy and washable painting activity. Perfect for getting children involved!
