FEATHERS, wool and felt are some of the things being used to give traditional images a unique and artistic twist at free activities this Easter holiday.

Between 2-4pm on Wednesday, April 7, special art and craft activities are taking place at the North Devon Museum, which is funded by North Devon Council.

Visitors can look at traditional bird and bloom designs as inspiration to create their own exotic birds and funky flowers.

A second session is taking place on Wednesday, April 14 from 2-4pm, to finish off work or to start something new.
