Stunning Stockings

In this box we look in more detail at the folk art of Scandinavia, Mexico and Central Asia. These three cultures and their different styles of folk art inspire us to paint a stocking, create patterned-paper tree decorations and colourful banners, as well as beautiful recycled candles to bring us light on those dark cozy evenings.

The Stunning Stockings Box

There is no shortage of colour at Christmas time, but it tends to be focused on reds, greens and whites. So, in this Christmas box, LoLA has decided to try and expand beyond this palette and to embrace the whole rainbow in its projects! For inspiration it has turned to the folk-art traditions that have for centuries now been a major influence on our Christmas accessories – first of all on that central feature, the tree, then on its decorations, on the candles, the stockings and, indeed, on the story of Santa Claus himself. 

What's inside the box?

  • A booklet introducing the theme, with information about artists, art styles and techniques.
  • Clear instructions on art projects, appropriate for children of any age (4+ years), including painting a large cotton stocking.
  • Includes LoLA book recommendations for further reading.
  • Plenty of quality art materials for your child.
