Artistic pupils from St Palladius’ Primary got crafty at a recent event in Dalry Library.

The P5 pupils designed and decorated a colourful temple as part of their India topic at the library’s Makerspace event.

Makerspaces in libraries offer the chance to learn new skills, with free access to tuition and equipment.

Jim Gibb, digital learning officer at Economy and Communities, said: “The class designed the temple as part of their digital skills visits to the Makerspace, with India as their school topic. Their design, complete with elephants, was printed using the cutting-edge Makerspace 3D printer.

“The class also designed a mini robot for the school, took part in coding sessions and experienced a VR headset as part of their Makerspace visits.”
