Left Bank Leeds

Cardigan Road, Leeds, LS6 1LJ

Our 2021 Summer holiday programme at Left Bank is packed with tons of fun activities to boost creative skills and get kids moving. The sessions run over 5 weeks, you can attend them all or just one!

This packed-out programme of creative fun is funded by Healthy Holidays and our Local Ward Councillors (big thank you!). Each child will receive a FREE packed lunch at the session they attend. When booking your session please let us know of any dietary requirements.

Please note that parents must stay on site with their children, all our workshops are family friendly!

Weaving with Beatrice

Come and get creative! We'll be throwing open big bags of scrap materials and Beatrice will be demonstrating how she weaves her magic and creates beautiful art covered in bits and bats and pom-poms and anything else that can be found in the bag of textile goodness.

Over the 5 sessions you'll help us create a big weaving together as a group. Each week we will create another fun element that can be added to the larger piece to make it epic!

Don't worry if you can't come to them all, you'll be able to create a mini weave that you can take home with you.

Come back each week to enjoy the sessions, see below for each week’s outline of what we'll be up to.
