October Half-term Family Crafts

The leaves were more gorgeous than ever… Already one or two kept constantly floating down, amber and golden in the low slanting sun-rays

Celebrate beautiful autumnal leaves by creating a leaf mobile to take home.

Our workshop is part of the city-wide Ruskin in Manchester, celebrating the legacy of John Ruskin (1819-1900) in Manchester, in the year that marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of this visionary thinker, with a programme of public events taking place across summer 2019.

Ruskin In Manchester is supported by the Guild of St George (the education charity founded by Ruskin in 1871) and Manchester Metropolitan University.
