JEWELLERY making and tie-dye t-shirts are just two of the things that youngsters are making in art and craft classes at the Arts Centre (Dunmow) this week.

Director Jacky Rom said: "The emphasis on the day is having fun and the children really seem to be enjoying themselves.

"This week we've been tie-dying t-shirts and making jewellery. We've also been making masks, hats as well as going on a day trip to Thorpe Park."

Amber White, aged five, has been to several of the sessions. She said: "The best bit has been making the necklaces and bracelets. I chose the beads all by myself and Jackie helped me put them all together.

"I've made a mask as well and I'm going to paint it to make it look like a princess."

The art and craft sessions run from Monday to Friday, 10am to noon and 2pm to 4pm. Each session costs £10.

Next week, Scene II

Theatre School, based at the Arts Centre, is running an 'X Factor' competition. Auditions start on Monday August 13, with a live final being held on Friday, August 17.

People wanting to know more about either the art and craft sessions or the X factor competition should contact Jacky, Mikki or Holli on 01371 878020.
