Work on one of the highlights of Barton upon Humber’s Christmas Festival, the Lantern Parade, begins soon with the launch of the lantern making workshops.
This year, the workshops have again been organised by the Barton based children’s charity, ST-ART, and have the theme, Winter Wonderland.

LEADER funding has enabled ST-ART to give young people aged between 16 and 25 years the opportunity to help out on activities that they now feel too old to attend. Young people have learnt new skills and gained an insight into what it is like to be a freelance artist. They have also given valuable support to artists during busy sessions by helping children attending. Continue reading
Around 350 young people have enjoyed this summer’s craft activities put together by the Barton upon Humber based charity, ST-ART.
The activities, which have taken place in Barton and Scunthorpe, as well as rural villages, have been based on Jules Verne’s novel, Around the World in 80 Days.
Young people from South Killingholme to Scunthorpe have the chance to get creative during the long summer holidays thanks to the Barton upon Humber based charity ST-ART which launches its four week long programme of activities and workshops on July 29.
This year the summer programme takes its theme from Jules Verne’s novel, Around the World in 80 Days.
Young people living in North Lincolnshire are being urged to do something creative during the summer holidays as the Barton upon Humber based charity ST-ART launches its four week long programme of activities and workshops.
ST-ART project co-ordinator Janine Knight explained that this year the summer programme was taking the theme from Jules Verne’s novel, Around the World in 80 Days.
“The programme starts on July 29 and we will be focussing on the art that can be found throughout the world,,” she said. “Our aim is to draw children and young people away from the electronic media to get hands-on experience in our activities and workshops.”
This year activities are being staged throughout North Lincolnshire including Riddings and Westcliff in Scunthorpe.
“There is so much to choose from this summer,” said Janine. “Half-day workshops include making hot air balloon mobiles, and around the world survival kit, totem poles, sombreros and a spectacular bejewelled necklace.”
“We are also running two longer sessions, both at The Ropewalk in Barton,” she added.
“The first is a three day session starting on Monday, August 5, suitable for seven to 13 year olds, with film-makers Focus7 to create a short animation film.
A five day workshop, beginning on Monday, August 19 and suitable for seven to 16 year olds, sees Duckegg Theatre showing young people different performance styles and songs from a range of places including Africa, India and the United States while putting together their very own modern day Culture Club Musical.”
Half day workshops cost just £1 while the Animation workshop costs £15 and the Culture Club Musical costs £25.
