Scheduled Brindley Events General News

Halton Libraries’ Let’s Make! Festival launches on Monday (17 May) and continues throughout May as part of the Celebrate Halton – Borough of Culture 2021 celebrations.

The innovative events include pixel art, digital workshop and an Amazon no.1 author.

There are lots of Halton Borough Council events and activities and at Halton Lea Library and Widnes Library that highlight the joy of making for you to get involved with.

There will be makers’ workshops including puppet making with Altru Drama, a creative non-profit organisation based in Liverpool, pixel art and tote bag design with the wonderful digital folk at Mako Create, and a cyanotypes printing workshop with Hazlehurst Studio artist, Rachael Prime.

There will also be a book sculpture workshop with artist Kate Bufton, who creates intricate and fragile paper sculptures from pages of timeworn books.

And you can join an online talk with S.E. Lynes, the Amazon #1 bestselling author of ‘intelligent and haunting’, ‘beautifully written’ psychological thrillers such as Valentina, Mother, and her latest novel, The Housewarming. So come on Halton, Let’s Make!
