CHILDREN from Battyeford Junior and Infant school enjoyed creating environmental art with Huddersfield-based arts co-operative The Word Hoard.
The event at Lady Wood, near Ravensthorpe, saw the youngsters and their families creating art based on the idea of family emblems.
There was also a Medieval forester wandering around the woods telling them what it was like to live and work in the forest.
The event was the culmination of a series of workshops that the artists held with the children to create masks and poems based on The Green Man.
The Word Hoard is made up of writers, visual artists, performers and musicians. Its artists work with a range of genres, including text, film, performance and the visual arts, with a huge range of people.
The event at Lady Wood was part of a range of art workshops over the last couple of months.
Aided by funding from the Local Network Fund, the artists have worked with children and their families from all over Kirklees to give them the opportunity to have a go at different art forms, including mask work, weaving and writing.
Kath Jones, Word Hoard artist and project coordinator, said: “The workshops are all aimed at children and families working together and having fun exploring their creative side.”
