It’s the end of era for the Creative Cafe and their art workshops.

The arts hub in Mark’s Gate has yet to receive more funding to keep their regular classes going and will be hosting the final two on Friday and Tuesday.

The two workshops will follow up on the success on the Book Art Workshop, where crowds of children were able to get creative by designing their own works of art from unwanted books on Friday.

Organiser Shazia Ur-Rehman said: “It went well and it seemed popular.”
