FREE Family Friendly workshop at Beswick Library – Saturday 30 October

Try out drumming, dance, and craft

If you head over to Beswick Library on Saturday 30 October, you can enjoy FREE family-friendly workshops where you can try out dance, drumming and percussion from Africa and the Caribbean with the world-class dance teacher, Imani Jendai and the leading musician Serge Tebu from Cameroon in Africa.

Join artist leading artist Gloria Saya from the Democratic Republic of Congo and learn how to make a special doll using recycled African fabric.  You’ll take the doll home and you’ll be able to make dolls using old clothes to keep or to give as presents.  No experience needed – absolute beginners welcome.

Gloria Saya

“I love to learn new things and I hate waste. I learned that from my dad who taught us to recycle everything. This is how I started making dolls from old clothes and fabrics from my mum’s sewing workshop.”

The FREE workshops are at 12pm and 1.30pm.

Pop into Beswick Library on Grey Mare Lane, M11 3DS, or ring 0161 245 7241. If you’ve got any access needs, ring the library and they will help you.
