FREE Family Friendly workshop at Beswick Library – Saturday 30 October 2021

Families tried out drumming, dance, and craft at Beswick Library.

On Saturday 30 October at Beswick Library, CAN ran free family-friendly workshops with 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.

Leading artist Gloria Saya from the Democratic Republic of Congo demonstrated how to create special dolls using recycled African fabric to make and take home!

Check out the brilliant pictures from the afternoon here!

“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.”

This event celebrates Manchester Libraries becoming Libraries of Sanctuary – a welcoming place to refugees and people new to Manchester.

An event by Community Arts North West in partnership with Manchester Libraries and Crossing Footprints.
