SKIPTON Civic Society is inviting families and young people along to workshops in March celebrating the town's hidden heritage.

Three Sunday afternoon family-friendly workshops at the Craven Arts House in Otley Street will mix art and history through hands-on sessions with artists Ailsa Lewer and Carine Brosse.

A spokesperson for the civic society said creative activities will be based on the town's newly created heritage trail on the 'What Was Here?' app funded by Historic England's High Streets Heritage Action Zone.

They said: "Have you ever noticed the cornucopia in the arms of the war memorial’s winged figure, or the intricate carvings at the entrance of Skipton Library; or the dragon on the front of the train station. People can use these stunning heritage features as inspiration to create unique prints by hand and simple bookmaking, which they can take home and proudly display."

The resulting mixed media map of High Street will be part of an exhibition at Skipton Town Hall and will go on show on March 30.

People are invited to drop in on the sessions at Craven Arts House, on March 3, March 10 and March 17, at Craven Arts House, from 2pm to 4pm. There will also be a workshop at the town hall on March 30, from 1pm to 4pm. Children should be accompanied by an adult.
