BUDDING young artists are invited to take part in two creative winter workshops being held at the Fairlynch Museum.

The holiday sessions are aimed at primary and secondary school children as part of the museum's art centre's programme.

Winter tale one, the first workshop, takes place on Saturday December 20, 2pm-5pm, at the Otter Estuary.

The group will be creating a collective raft sculpture, which will be set afloat on the Otter and out to sea.

Once the raft has gone from sight, the session will move to the museum for hot apple punch and winter stories.

The second workshop takes place at Fairlynch art centre on Monday December 22, from 2pm until 5pm, where youngsters will be invited to create birch wreaths and collage ornaments while listening to some tales.

Children are asked to bring along pictures and fabric for their wreaths.

Budleigh Salterton artists Tess Stone and Sue-Claire Morris, whose work focuses on outdoor settings, are running the workshops.

The events have been sponsored by the county council and the Garden Shop.

There is a minimum donation of £2 for each workshop.

Places are limited so early booking is advised.

Parents must accompany children under eight.

For more information, or to book, telephone (01395) 445608/443179.
