CREATING musical maracas proved the most popular of a series of workshops for children and adults at Falmouth Art Gallery.

About 30 children and 15 adults turned up for the final event in a week of fun at the gallery as part of a Global Gardens initiative.

The art-based project is led by Gyllyngdune Gardens, the John Dyer Gallery and Falmouth Art Gallery and concludes next week.

As part of the project there were school workshops, a community painting event with artist John Dyer, who also gave a talk, and an art competition.

In the gallery youngsters could paint plants from around the world, create monoprints, use fabric to make textured collage landscapes or make tropical shakers.

Donna Williams, from the gallery, said about 25 to 30 children attended each workshop, with the maracas being the most popular.
