Litter Cafe – Art Club
The Litter Cafe Art Club will start Saturday 6th of February, with a trip to the House of Objects. The children will get a crash course on how to recycle, re-purpose and re-use everyday household objects. The club hopes to get the children in the West End of Newcastle thinking more creatively about the objects they throw away, and after the trip begin building a mini Litter Cafe which will be open to the public.
On the 15th of February, during school half-term, staff from Virgin Money and The Sage are going to the Bentinck Learning hub.
