Youngsters get creative

Youngsters were kept busy this half term at a craft workshop held in Blyth.

Keel Row shopping centre held the Creation Station workshop, where more than 25 children took part in the activities including noodle doodles and bead wind chimes made from a range of materials including pipe cleaners, ribbons, beads and noodles.

The budding artists then all took their masterpieces home to show off their handiwork to their friends and family.

Centre manager Callum Reid said: “It was fantastic to see so many children get involved in putting their artistic talents to the test.

“There were some wonderful pieces made and the event brought fun to the centre for the kids and passers-by.”
