The grounds of Bannockburn House were transformed into an open-air art gallery and studio recently, with hands-on creative fun for families.

The free event, organised by Vantage Points (Bannockburn and the Eastern Stirling Creative network) and Scene Stirling, gave youngsters the chance to try  out paper modelling, lantern making, clay modelling and rock painting.

Families also relished the opportunity to explore a woodland art trail and treasure hunt, including photography, installations, sculptures, textiles and banners, which were created in collaboration with the local community, school holiday clubs and six local artists during the summer.

Silvia Sinibaldi of Scene Stirling said: “After an amazing summer of creativity, it was great to invite families back to join us at Bannockburn House to see their artwork on display. We’re looking forward to seeing the creative network grow and develop, creating more opportunities for communities to get involved in designing and experiencing arts and cultural activities on their doorstep.”
