Online workshops ahead of Holmfirth Arts Festival 2020

Places on online arts and crafts workshops for all ages, are still available ahead of Holmfirth Arts Festival 2020.
Talented artists and creatives are running the sessions as part of this year's festival participation programme.
The popular Yorkshire festival usually fills the streets and venues of Holmfirth each summer with live performance, but this year, the event has shifted online over the weekend of 18-20 September.
It will be streamed at 7.30pm each night by the festival's Facebook page and YouTube channel, offering an action-packed 45 minutes of entertainment, to enjoy from home.
In the build up to the event, artists and creatives are offering FREE online workshops, with all equipment needed thrown in.
You have to collect the equipment in advance from Holmfith Tech, on Hudderfield Road.
Classes are being held from Thursday 10 September until Friday 18 September and include topics such as Shadow Drawing and Printing with Dionne Swift; you can learn how to turn an old t-shirt into yarn with Julia Roebuck of Upcycle Fashion, or perhaps design an Earth Guardian character with artist Jessica Macmillan.
You can also make a home-made knitting machine or take part in puppet fixing workshop or learn how to take photographs of the puppets in action.

The courses are being funded by Holmfirth Arts Festival, thanks to support from Kirklees Council, Longley Farm and emergency funding from Arts Council, England.
