The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Join Ignite Imaginations and Sheffield Libraries this spring half term for a series of online artist-led, holiday-themed activities.

Each of the five workshops is suitable for children aged 7-12 years old, and will feature a video and instruction sheet created by a local artist. They'll use materials that people can either find in their homes or are fairly easy to buy under the current circumstances – check the Ignite Imaginations Facebook page, where they'll be sharing material lists before the workshops going live.

Sign up to Ignite's mailing list to have the activities sent straight to your inbox each day. Or just head to Facebook each day, Monday to Friday, for the videos and instructions.
