Summer fun for all at Kirkby Gallery with the Random Crafts Club

by Emily Maguire

Between 26 July and 27 August, Kirkby Gallery is running the ‘Random Crafts Club’, a COVID-secure craft area for children and young people to get creative. Each family or bubble will be provided with their own special table or ‘pod’ area to work in and will be given a craft bag containing all the materials needed for a free, fun make-and-take activity.

The drop-in sessions take place at the gallery on Mondays, Tuesdays & Fridays between 10am & 3pm throughout the summer holidays and whilst there’s no need to book, the gallery team advise that you may have to wait during busier times.

Throughout the summer holidays there will be the opportunity to have a go at different craft and creative techniques using fabrics and paper that have been donated to the gallery from Oliver Steer Interior Design, and the gallery’s friendly staff and volunteers will help you create something amazing to take home with you.

Whilst masks aren’t compulsory, for COVID safety you are encouraged to wear one when visiting the gallery. A one-way system is in operation at the gallery and hand sanitiser is provided. Children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult.

Kirkby Gallery and Random Crafts Club dates and times may be subject to change in case of further Government announcements regarding COVID restrictions. Please check their website, Twitter or Facebook pages before you visit.

Kirkby Gallery is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, 10am – 4pm. Current opening times at Kirkby Gallery are subject to changing COVID-19 guidance. The gallery is located at The Kirkby Centre, Norwich Way, Kirkby, L32 8XY. For further information contact galleries@knowsley.gov.uk 0151 443 4936.
