Photo-shoot rounds up ST-ART’s summer programme

By admin |

Budding fashion designers and makers in Barton upon Humber will be taking part in a photo-shoot to celebrate the end of the summer workshops celebrating the 1960s and Flower Power.

Ropery Hall on Maltkiln Road will be the venue for the photo-shoot on Thursday, September 1 when all the young people who have taken part in this summer’s fashion and accessories workshops organised by the Barton based charity ST-ART will have the opportunity to be captured for posterity.

“The photo-shoot is the culmination of the workshops which have been running throughout the holidays,” said ST-ART co-ordinator Janine Knight.

“We are delighted that the photo-shoot is being supported by our neighbours at The Ropewalk, the C V Day Spa who will be providing hair and make up with the 60s look.

Simon Vickers of Simon Vickers Photography, who has a studio at The Ropewalk, will be behind the camera shooting the portraits.”

And Janine added: “We will be using as a backdrop to the photo-shoots the Tardis built in Michael Scrimshaw’s workshop earlier in the holidays and some of the accessories made in the workshops will be used as props.”

The fashion workshops have been running throughout the summer holidays and have included making 60s style dresses, skirts and tops, tie-dye shirts and skirts and accessories.

The photo-shoot is from 2pm onwards at Ropery Hall.
