The Weekly Challenge

The Weekly Challenge, 4th November 2019

This week’s challenge mixes a few of our favourite things – creativity, crafting, and..tea! Languages teacher Ruth invites you to sit down with your favourite hot drink, and get creative.


Turn a tea bag into art! Make a lovely cup of tea, and use the teabag or the tealeaves to make a stain on a piece of paper or card. Experiment with  types of tea to find different colours and textures. 

Turn the stain into something new. You could add features, a slogan, a background…what can you see? A dark and stormy night, a character, a woodland scene? 

If you have more time … 
Repeat the challenge with new materials – ketchup, mustard, washing-up liquid, coffee, soup….. Which substance makes the best base for your art?Think 

How did it feel to make ‘something’ out of ‘nothing’? What other art materials are hiding in your cupboards?
