'Bringing the Inside Out' Workshop

Another day, another public holiday in Sri Lanka! We've given up trying to keep up. Today is 'Pongal'; but you knew that right?

The schools are out so we were in running a 'Bringing the Inside Out' workshop to keep all the Kandy kids who attend the centre entertained and off the streets. 

It was difficult working in the heat today but everyone shone to match the sun's influence*. The older group made 'The Green Man' & 'Rolling Stone' sculptures from bonding wire which will be planted with vines and evolve into natural features of the front garden area. The younger ones held court inside making creative decorations from recycled resources. 

A great day of Pongal fun and great being all together again with this amazing lot. Maybe pack the suncream next time though!
