What’s on at Clockwork Studios in Prescot – FREE events for the community

by Guy Murphy

A number of community events are taking place at Clockwork Studios in Prescot over the coming weeks and months and Knowsley residents are urged to get involved.

Zero Waste

Every Saturday from 11am to midday, Clockwork Studios teams with up local charity Liverpool Zero Waste to help save food, treats and other items from going to waste.

The food is all perfectly good and fresh, just ‘guilty’ of not being in perfect shape.

Residents just need to turn up with a bag and can help do their bit towards zero waste.

All food and items are provided on a first come, first served basis.

Time 4 Art

Looking for something for teenagers (13+) to do during the winter nights? Clockwork Studios, in partnership with Emily Spurrell Merseyside Police & Crime Commissioner, is hosting Time 4 Art drop in sessions.

Taking place every Saturday from 3pm-5.30pm, teenagers can join in with tattoo design, graffiti art and colouring club – all ran by local artists and free of charge.

Young people can discover the art of mindful colouring in, perfect their tattoo and graffiti drawing skills, and meet new people.

All equipment will be provided, plus hot drinks and the biscuits – attendees just have walk in and find a seat and get colouring!

Breathe Better Air

Clockwork Studios is looking for volunteers to part in the ‘Breathe Better Air’ project. Funded by the Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside, the project aims to get residents to think about better choices they can make to be more sustainable, and start making some small daily changes which will, in time, make a big collective difference.

During the project, volunteers will explore:

  • Sustainability
  • Food Waste
  • Upcycling
  • Recycling
  • Net Zero and Low Carbon emissions
  • *How our behaviour affects the planet and the lives of those around us

Warm Hub

As part of Knowsley Council’s Winter Wellness programme, residents can access a Warm Hub at Clockwork Studios every Saturday from 12.30pm-2.30pm.

At the Warm Hub, residents can explore how Prescot people lived in the 18th century and enjoy the chance to try their hand at some of the activities that took place during that time, including pottery, weaving, bag making.
