Art workshops

North Lanarkshire Council’s arts development team is holding a junk sculpture workshop called Odds and Sods, Bits and Bobs at Bellshill Cultural Centre from August 8-11.

Suitable for children aged 8-12, articipants will work with an artist over the four days of jam packed activities to make a funky animal or robotic sculpture.

Recycling plastic bottles and containers, the rookie artists will design, construct, paper mache and spray paint their creations before adding those all important finishing touches.

The workshop runs from 10am–1pm each day and costs £8 per session or £30 for all four.
