Star by Star

The ‘Star by Star’ project is a super craft activity for all the children to participate in run by the Play Department at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Chilren.  The simple concept encourages children in the hospital to create their very own star designs.  The Guild of Friends and The Angels in Art Project support the specially made ‘star boxes’, filled with art supplies and reference materials, which help the Play Department to inspire the wonderful work produced by the children.  Decorating the star is found to be a great motivator and it is often the first activity the children join in with after a long period of great illness or a large operation.  To be able to achieve something so unique is marvellous for them.  Some of the funds have been used to provide children with photocopies and sheets of stickers created from their star designs which they get to take home and which gives great delight.
