Youth Art @ Holmes Lock

05-08-18 10:00 - 15:30


Join DCRT and Faunagraphic for a three-day workshop focusing on using spray paint to create art. Young people aged 11 – 18 will spray their own design on to a currently unloved wall along the Sheffield – Rotherham canal within the theme of wildlife and waterways history.  The aim of these workshops is to change the perceptions of the area as well as teaching young people new skills and getting them outside.

Workshops will take place on the 5th, 6th and 9th of August, 10am – 3.30pm

If you’re interested in getting involved with this project please contact coordinator Matt Duffy on 01302 796 173 or via email at [email protected].
