Drop in to school holiday creative workshops

A series of hugely popular educational and creative workshops is back for another stint celebrating the power and culture of recycling.

Re-Made In Hull was a huge hit with children and families earlier in the year at the ScrapStore  workshops, which introduced people to the value of reusing materials, and the positive impact that has on the environment.

The workshops will run throughout the summer and autumn school holidays.

Set in a pretend factory environment, each workshop will focus on different elements of reclaimed waste with the option of making creations using more than 1,000 resources from the ScrapStore warehouse at Hull Play Resource Centre in Dairycoates Avenue.

ScrapStore workshops are becoming one of the most accessible entries into first-time craft activities for families in Hull.
– Robbie Lawson, organiser

Organiser Robbie Lawson said: “The Re-Made In Hull workshops provide a stimulating and entertaining environment where children can use their imaginations, develop their confidence in skills and experience collaborative working while nurturing their creative ideas.

“I firmly believe that the ScrapStore workshops are becoming one of the most accessible entries into first-time craft activities for families in Hull.”

The workshops, which are part of Hull 2017’s Creative Communities Programme, last for two hours and provide an opportunity to work with a leading community artist in a comfortable and structured session.

Martin Green, director of Hull 2017, said: “There are no barriers to being creative and Re-Made in Hull is a great example of how it can take many different shapes and forms.  

“Hull 2017 is all about getting children involved with art and creativity so we are delighted to see that the hugely successful ScrapStore workshops are back for another exciting run.” 

You don’t need to bring any old clothing as workshops are not “messy” and no liquid adhesives or paint will be used.

Workshops will take place from 11am to 1pm on most Mondays, Tuesday and Saturdays during the school summer holidays, before returning for the autumn half-term holidays.

You don’t need to book a place on any of the summer’s workshops, just turn up and enjoy.
