BRIGHTLY-coloured plasticine elephants and stripey plastic circus tents were part of the fun at a library art workshop.

Ayshia Moreton, 10, and her dad Jim, 51, had lots of fun getting creative at Waterlooville Library.

The pair joined dozens of others making circus tents out of corrugated plastic and painting them bright colours.

Artist Lucy Jackson encouraged families taking part to work together to come up with the best, hand-made, miniature circus.

She said: ‘I’ve been impressed, they’ve come up with some great ideas. The workshop was aimed at four to 12-year-olds working with their parents and there’s been a nice atmosphere all day.

‘Children had a chance to work closely with their mum and dads making something spectacular.

‘They used their imaginations and made canvas advertising boards and plasticine animals.

‘They’ve used all sorts of making skills, from cutting and gluing to designing things and choosing different materials.

‘Seeing their ideas take shape in 3D has developed their confidence.’
