Project Materials and Equipment

We decided to offer a range of familiar and less familiar materials, kept consistent across the three workshops.

The youth club attendees are aged from 12 to 17 with differing interests, abilities and confidence levels.

When preparing for the workshop, we wanted to make sure that all of them felt able to take part in the project if they chose.
