Children enjoyed getting messy during a creative craft session involving cats, ponies and even extra-terrestrials.

Youngsters aged five to 12 made masks featuring aliens and cats, as well as ‘peg ponies’, using pegs for legs and feet, at the session at Otley Courthouse.

Volunteer Glenis Burgess said: “It was great. The kids were really wonderful. They were so focused on what they were doing.”

The Courthouse’s Art Stars craft sessions run each Saturday from 10am to noon during term time.
