Chinese New Year was celebrated by children at an arts and crafts session in Windsor on Saturday.
Creative company Raspberry Rain held the event at the Windsor Liberal Club.
The children learnt about the Chinese festival and some of the history and legends associated with the celebration. Arty youngsters decorated dragon masks, painted Chinese Lantern candle holders and created drawings and paintings of the animals from the year of their birth.
Michelle Wernham, artist and director of Raspberry Rain, said: "With our fun, relaxed approach to learning this workshop was a lovely way for children to celebrate and learn about Chinese New Year. Some beautiful artwork was created by all and it was lovely to see some of the parents getting involved too."
The next event is an Easter workshop on Saturday, March 23 in Eton Wick Village Hall.
