This workshop is part of our new project 'Makers & Shakers' which is a series of exciting craft workshops and zine making project for young people in Leeds.

Designed to inspire and nurture the next generation of makers, artists and creative thinkers, we've put together an amazing line-up of workshops from guest artists including everything from weaving and printing to model making and craftivism. Throughout the workshops we will also be opening up discussions in topics such as wellbeing, culture, creativity and the environment and co-designing a riso printed craft zine with the young people which will be available to buy at the end of the project.

The project will close on 31st July with a zine launch event which parents and carers are welcome to attend. Free tickets are available to book now.

Supported with funding from Leeds Inspired, part of Leeds City Council.
