Dubbed ‘A Space to Make’, the fortnightly creative drop-in sessions are being hosted by Making Space in Bishopstoke Road, Leigh Park until May. 

Up to 12 youngsters aged 10 to 14 can attend and will be encouraged to use their imagination and let loose with a host of ‘inspiring’ materials to embark on their own projects. 

The first-come-first-served sessions take place on Mondays between 4.30pm and 6pm and are supported by a local maker and one of Making Space’s young volunteers.
