Family Film Club workshop: An Indoor Forest

In this workshop artist, Monica, shows us how to make an indoor forest out of materials we find at home. All the family can work together to decide how you want your indoor forest to look. Start by looking at any plants in your home or trees outside, discover the shape and texture of the leaves and use it as inspiration for your forest.
