Homelife Sunday No. 8 - Spinners and the Colour Wheel with Artist Lynda Loughnane

This week, artist Lynda Loughnane is sending us spinning!

In the downloadable step-by-step guide and video below, Lynda shows us how to make some super spinning wheels using simple materials, teaching us about the fascinating world of Colour Theory along the way. In this fun, creative activity there is plenty of scope to experiment and play with geometrical designs, illustrations, and colour combinations. After all, Art and Science are just two sides of the same spinner!

Please ensure adult supervision is provided where necessary (especially when it comes to some cutting, gluing, poking holes and tying knots in lengths of string). And most importantly of all…have lots of fun!
