Following the success of the summer programme of Blank Page workshops, Suffolk Libraries has announced a new series of winter workshops for young people taking place in libraries across the county.
Winter workshops start on Thursday 21 December and will take place at libraries in Haverhill, Stowmarket, Gainsborough, Lowestoft, Chantry, Great Cornard, Halesworth and Bungay.
The Blank Page programme gives 10-16 year-olds the chance to express their creativity through a range of mediums at high-quality workshops run by local artists. Blank Page was launched for the Easter holidays and is funded through the Holiday Activity Fund.
Workshops are completely free to attend but please book your place to avoid disappointment. The full list of workshops is listed below and more details and booking information can be found at https://www.suffolklibraries.co.uk/whats-on/annual-events/blank-page
