Workshops for the Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade start tomorrow, offering the chance to create your own costume for the event.

The parade will be split into four sections of earth, air, fire and water.

Those going along to the workshops will have the chance to choose which section they’d like to be in and will receive expert help and guidance from professional parade artists so that they can create their own costume and carryable parade art.

This weekend’s workshops will run from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday with further workshops on Tuesday and Thursday next week from 4pm to 6pm and at the same days and times through to June 20, with extra workshops for teens and adults from 7-9pm on June 18 and 20.

Workshops will be held at Unit 5, Victoria Works, Victoria Road, Hebden Bridge - entrance is by donation. All children under 12 need to be accompanied by an adult at the workshops and during the parade.
