ST-ART summer activities draw to a close

By admin |

A week long programme of activities at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall brings ST-ART’s summer children’s programme to a close.

The locally based charity has been providing art activities and workshops throughout August and in the final week “things to do” include making giant plates and tea cups using dried willow, recycling vintage crockery plate stands using old tea cups, saucers, candlesticks and plates to create unusual display stands and making Green Man masks with air dry clay.

“The summer programme has been really busy with a lot of positive feedback,” said ST-ART organiser Janine Knight.

“Throughout August we have offered a wide range of art activities for young people,” she said.  “We have aimed to develop creativity and channel young imaginations as well as making our workshops fun.”

Other activities at Ropery Hall during the week include a workshop where recycled materials are used to create small kinetic sculptures of insects and animals and learning drumming techniques at an African drumming workshop.

All of the Ropery Hall activities from Monday, August 23 through to Friday, August 27, begin at 10am and last for two hours and each workshop costs just £1 per session.

Other activities taking place during the last week are at venues including Barnetby, Goxhill, Scunthorpe, Epworth and Wootton.
