Hortus Urbis, the new open-air festival dedicated to gardening ancient Rome-style, is holding a kids' art workshop on Sunday 6 October.
Children will be shown how to create paintings using colours made from soil at the workshop which takes place from 11.00 (but will be postponed in the case of rain). For details including cost see website.
Hortis Urbis happens in the Appia Antica park every Sunday, from 10.00, from 29 September until 30 November. The family-orientated weekly day out includes children's activities, workshops, picnics, seed and plant swaps, and exhibitions. The weekly event is open to all, young and old, expert and amateur.
