It is encouraging children to get creative with arts and crafts while they are not at school.

“We would love to see you create a magical Easter tree with things you collect in nature,” said Amanda Wooldridge, from the gallery.

“We’ve used clay as a base but you could use play dough or anything else you can get your hands on.
