Create three handsome postcard designs using different techniques, to send to friends and loved ones. During lockdown, artist Lucy Joyce has been making postcards to send to people at a time when it has been impossible to meet up. Do the same and send your loved ones a pretty postcard!

Send Me a Postcard is the first of a series of packs designed by our wonderful Artist Associates for families to make art together over the summer. The packs are intended for children aged 2-11yrs, the younger you are, the more your adult will need to work with you.

Each pack contains a set of simple instructions with suggested easy-to-source materials to use and an estimated time for the activity.
