The Big local Small Grants Award 2016 is now Closed. The Grant Panel will meet shortly and all applicants will be contacted in due course
Last Saturday, Wow Mums took the mums , children and the residents of Haven Lodge to have an intergenerational lunch together at the Magic Garden in Battersea, where the art we produced in March was exposed for the Wandsworth art festival. It was a boost of confidence to see all the art we made in this amazing exhibition. The kids attended various workshops during the day including pottery making, sticking, painting and creating models out of recycling material. Musiciens were playing, people were sketching. It was a great day for everyone
This day out has been funded by Big Local SW11 as a follow up from the march art class.
