This year we have had our busiest Summer Programme so far and we enjoyed a wide range of activities with young women, young Mams and their children. We went on a picnic in Saltwell Park, the the Beach at South Shields, forest school at Birkheads Wild, bowling, rock climbing, swimming, Beamish, Jumparena, Dynamix and held a song writing workshop, sign language workshop and a tie dying class in the Project.
We were approached a local business called CraftHood who organise a variety of contemporary craft sessions across the North East. One element of their business is a Buy One, Gift One project where the CraftHood donate a workshop to a charity. We were lucky enough to be gifted some of these workshops and in July we created block printed cloth bags. The session was attended by ten young women who thoroughly enjoyed the activity and got to take their finished bag home.
