Work with artists Ben Sadler and Phil Duckworth from Juneau Projects and get hands on with a range of art and design materials to help make something you’d like to see in the town.

Fergal Clenaghan, who is organising the series of workshops, said: "We’re working with the theme of the connections between people, nature, and the Whitby estuary.

"As well as making something at the workshop, Ben and Phil would be keen to hear your stories of the estuary and knowledge of local wildlife.

"Come along for a hot drink, a chat and a bit of creativity – all welcome, no experience necessary!"
