Skegness’s Barratt Court to host ‘Work Together Workshops


Due to the success of the Papier Mache Workshops that took place as part of the SO Festival and Fringe Festival at Barratt Court in June and July, organisers have chosen to widen its appeal.

The Waterloo Housing Groups ‘Lincolnshire Local Board Dream Scheme’ has launched a community pilot scheme for anyone in the community to get involved with the workshops of local artist, May Jones, who is heading the scheme.

The workshops are designed to help people in the local community learn new skills, meet new people, make new friends and have some fun at a craft club.

The workshops are to be held every Monday from 12.30pm until December 8, 2014 at The Lancaster Lounge (accessed via the Roundel Café) at the Barratt Court residential care home, Skegness.

The workshops are designed to be informal as well as informative and participants will learn from their own and others mistakes.

If participants cannot manage to make an item on their own, they can join up with another and create an item through joint effort.

You do not have to attend every week and organisers say ‘you can drop in when you like’.

The first four weeks will be dedicated to making Papier Mache items and after that the craft sessions will be dedicated to making decorations, gifts, cards and fun items for Christmas, using all sorts of materials.

The club is open to all members of the community aged over 18, as well as residents living at Barratt Court.

Sessions are free of charge and include all materials.

The club will look to use recycled materials (through donations) as much as possible.
