Variety of activities on offer at Malvern Youth
Worcestershire County Council is inviting families and
young people to take part in their latest 'hands-on' weekend
session at Malvern Youth Centre.
Following on from their unique Roots and
Shoots summer courses, the Malvern Youth Centre and Transition
Malvern have organised a new series of weekend workshops aimed at
building on the growing ethos of regenerating community spirit and
re-learning some of the traditional skills that may have been
The courses are intended to encourage
different generations to work together to learn new skills, yet
traditional skills such as spinning wool, baking bread and seasonal
crafts such as Christmas wreaths, willow lanterns and toy
The sessions, which take place every Saturday
at Malvern Youth Centre, between 3pm and 5.30pm, offer a chance to
learn new skills from experts who will be on hand to show how these
skills can not only be fun to do, but be put to good use around our
homes and could also help save money too.
Jon White, Worcestershire County
Council's Malvern Youth Centre Manager, said: "This is a
chance for families and young people to get involved in a series of
amazing activities over the coming months. The workshops will be
great fun as well as hopefully promoting a more sustainable and
make do and mend attitude that could save money.
"The activities will be aimed at helping young
people learn from the older generations, promoting a greater
understanding as well as gaining new skills."
Most of the sessions are free for both adults
and children (under 10's have to be accompanied by an adult.)
Positive Opportunities Worcester (POW) funding
