Getting Creative on a Canal Boat!

Craft Table

Young people in the Craven area got the chance to take part in the Watershed project during November. This was a new initiative to explore different art forms whilst taking inspiration from the industrial heritage of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal in Skipton. Activities on offer were Zine making, photography, sound recording, and creative writing. On the longer sessions, on a Sunday, they were able to have a trip along the canal, try their hand at steering and help with the swing bridges.

There was some amazing work created over the 6 sessions and we are hoping to hold an exhibition soon. The project was delivered by IVE, Canal Connections and the Writing Squad, and was made possible through funding from The Lakes and Dales Great Place Fund.
