Over the Christmas holidays, Community Arts by ZK brought together children aged 6-13 from different parts of Pendle to take part in creative winter-themed workshops. Our project, LITTLE ICICLES, was led by our community artist, Louise Cunningham, who worked with the children on a variety of art projects. The children experimented with using recycled materials and learnt a range of different artistic techniques. Workshops included Disk Décor, Yarn Branches, 3D Winter Wonderlands and Dots and Spots! The children developed skills in sculpture, collage and design and explored the possibilities of creating artwork using unwanted materials. The sessions encouraged the children to think out of the box and enhanced their creativity and imagination. Our workshops help children to excel and thrive through education, creativity, and socialisation, which increases their self-esteem and confidence.

The workshops took place at our headquarters, Northlight Estates in Brierfield. 

We also took nature walks along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal to incorporate physical activity. Our winter holiday camp was followed by an exciting trip to Colne Muni to watch the Beauty and the Beast pantomime. The children all received a hamper of food and treats kindly donated by Fun Vibes Active Lives. This was to promote healthy eating.

This project was in collaboration with Lancashire County Council and Fun Vibes Active Lives, as part of the holiday activities and food programme (HAF).
