Concrete Collage Workshop with Kids

May 16, 2017 in Good Things Must Share / Kids / Lifestyle

I know I’ve said this many times in the past year but I’m really enjoying this stage when the kids are still oh-so-cute and we can hang out and do interesting activities together. Some time ago, I brought the kids along to try our hands at making a Concrete Collage at a really pretty space at Rochester – DW Workshop. The place has unfortunately closed for now, but I thought it was too fun an experience I had with the kids to not jot it down here.

Except for the cutting with huge pen knives, the kids did pretty much everything themselves with the guidance of a very patient facilitator.

Checking out the tools we will need

Preparing the concrete mix

Mixing of cement powder

Preparing the mould

Buffering

Creating collage from old magazines and own drawings to customise our block.

The collage is then printed on paper, cut and pasted on one side of our block with some mod podge.

Distressing the collage

Finally, choosing the right plant!

TA-DAH! Pretty cool eh.
