Hugely popular craft workshops returning for the summer holidays!

A series of hugely popular educational and creative workshops are 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 are back at the end of this month and will run throughout the summer 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.

Re-Made in Hull is part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017’s Creative Communities Programme.

The workshops last for two hours and provide an opportunity to work with a leading community artist in a comfortable, but structured session.

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!

Martin Green, Director of Hull 2017, said: “There are no barriers to being creative and Re-Made in Hull is a great example of that, showing that creativity 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 amazing run.”
