Lancashire Reading Journey printing workshops

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

Printing workshops will be held at six Lancashire libraries in July and August.

The free 3D printing sessions are part of this year's SCART Club Challenge, part of the Lancashire Reading Journey.

Run in partnership with the Create Education Project, the workshops will include an introduction to 3D printing and the chance to design and print a personalised bookmark.

The workshops will be held at Kingsfold, Chorley, Leyland, Burnley, Longton and Clitheroe libraries. The sessions are suitable for visitors to the library aged from six to 12 years old. All children taking part must be accompanied by an adult.

County Councillor Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: "This is a great opportunity for children to learn a new skill, and to get their creative juices flowing with the chance to design and to print their own bookmark.

"Hopefully the bookmark will come in useful as they take part in this year's SCART Club Challenge."

The SCART Club Challenge is free, and children aged five to 12 can take part up until Monday 10 September.

Just visit a library to join in. Children need to complete two fun tasks from each of this year's five themes - Science, Culture, Active, Reading and Technology (SCART).

They'll even be rewarded with stickers and prizes after completing their chosen tasks.

There'll be lots of activities taking place across all our libraries over the summer weeks, plus plenty of ideas to keep children entertained, as part of the SCART Club Challenge.

The 3D printing workshops are free to attend but booking is essential as places are limited.
