LAUNCHING the exhibition programme at Skipton Town Hall this year is an event showcasing the art and photography work of talented students of Skipton Girls High School.

The high school’s art and photography exhibition features work of the school’s year-11 and year-13 students. It opened today (January 14) and will run until Saturday, March 11.

It will take place in the gallery and entry is free.

On Saturday, January 21 (11am) and Sunday, January 22 (11am) a series of ‘make and mend’ woolly workshops run by organisers of Yarndale, the town’s hugely popular annual festival of yarn, continues.

People are invited to drop in and join craferts to crochet, knit, mend and make. People can also take along a favourite jumper perhaps, that needs darning, or ‘granny squares’ that need help in putting together - help will be on hand to help recycle those loved items that have been hidden away in a cupboard.

No experience is necessary and all abilities are welcome, people are invited to ‘come along for a cuppa, share skills and start a new creative journey in 2023.’

Children must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult, there is no need to book, but places are limited, so its a case of first come, first served.
