Free craft and making club for teenagers in Sleaford
The National Saturday Club is working in partnership with The Hub in Sleaford to launch a free Craft and Making Saturday Club for local 13–16-year-olds and is accepting applications now.
The National Saturday Club is a UK-wide network, supported by Arts Council England and the Department for Education. It has been running since 2009 and works in partnership with over 70 universities, colleges, and cultural institutions across the UK.
Free and open to young people of all abilities, the Saturday Club will run from January 13, to July 13, 2024 at The Hub in Sleaford.
The National Saturday Club offers young people a unique opportunity to explore subjects they love for free, to build new skills, discover their talents, meet new people, and to explore future study and career possibilities. Weekly Saturday classes will be led by tutors at The Hub and will cover a breadth of exciting and engaging topics.
In addition, club members have the opportunity to participate in National Saturday Club events including Masterclasses with leading industry professionals, the Summer Show where Saturday Clubs nationwide exhibit their work in a public exhibition, and an end-of-year graduation ceremony for club members to celebrate their achievements.
A similar club is due to run at Boston College as well. the Saturday Club there will run from October 7, 2023 to June 1, 2024 at Boston College.
Each year, the programme gives thousands of young people the unique opportunity to study subjects they love for free on Saturday mornings, with a particular focus on engaging young people from underrepresented backgrounds. Taking part in the programme enables young people to explore subjects they love for free outside of school with access to fantastic facilities and expert tutors. Through the programme they build new skills, discover their talents, meet new people, and find out more about future study and career possibilities.
