Rainbow Village was an online creative Project led by Amanda Jane Ogden showing us how to make a village from recycled paper, card, glue and paints.

The step-by-step creative project was designed for people to follow at home, and featured a step-by-step video tutorial. Although the project has ended, it is never too late to join in. The videos are posted below, so you can complete the villages in your own time. All you need is some bits out of your recycling, a cardboard box, glue, and some colouring pencils/pens.

At the end of the project there was an online exhibition of all the Rainbow Villages made, each one being individual to the person, reflecting where you all live.
