SCARBOROUGH TRICKS & TREATS

Scarborough Town Centre

Monday 30th October – Friday 3rd November

Produced by ARCADE

Funded by Yorkshire Coast BID

Commissioned by Scarborough Town Centre Team

Learn new TRICKS and earn some TREATS during October half term in Scarborough.

With the options of vibrant, colourful, and slightly scary, children and young people will be able to learn new skills and make their own fabulous creations in a series of FREE workshops in Scarborough Town Centre during the October half term holidays.

Scarborough Tricks and Treats, named to echo the cries of many a child at front doors at Halloween, will operate from three town centre locations, featuring local artists imparting their skills and experience to both young residents and visitors.

THE ARTISTS

Steve Wintercroft leads an environmentally conscious design company specialising in helping people make Masks from waste card. He’s published seven papercraft books and worked on projects for Damien Hirst, Sir Paul McCartney, Björk and Game of Thrones. Steve’s workshops will be led by Kyra Stewart and Amy Carpenter.

The SJT is an independent theatre and cinema based in Scarborough. Their famous theatre-in-the-round (the first of its kind in the world) provides a truly unique experience as the audience is seated all around the stage. Not only does the audience see the performance from every angle, it also brings the actor into the same space as the audience.

Bobby Hick is an artist, curator and serial monoprinter, originally working in galleries in West Yorkshire but now based in Scarborough. She has been sharing her love of printing without a press and holds regular classes introducing people to the joys of gel plate printmaking.

Lisa Silver leads fibre related workshops including teaching knitting, crochet, spinning and yarn dyeing. She is passionate about teaching people to improve their ability and learn new skills.

 

This project is made possible with funding from Yorkshire Coast BID.
