A great fun workshop, children will work with artist Chloe Nugent to create prints based on Rossendale. Rich with wildlife and landscapes the valley provides and excellent subject matter to inspire your creativity. You will learn a couple of printing techniques in this workshop.

Inspired by the Ray Lowry exhibition, that will be in the gallery area, Jackie will be introducing you to different styles of 2D cartoons, the ones that are often seen in newspapers and cartoons and helping children to create their own.
