Metal Embossing
Recycle old foil trays and cans to make an Embossed picture

Make an attractive embossed foil picture using items you can probably find around the house. Our tutor will guide you through this simple technique, suitable for all ages (children 5+ with assistance) and abilities, to create an embossed picture that can be mounted on a card, in a frame or as a book cover.

A great idea for a family learning activity or something to keep you amused during lockdown! You will need to supply your own materials and tools, but you will probably have most of it in the house anyway!
