Arts & Crafts @ Silx……..

We do try and give every night at Silx a theme during our teen bar sessions.  Tuesdays and Thursdays are ‘in the mix’ – I’m sure if you have walked through the market place in Blyth between the hours of 5pm and 8pm on these days you will have heard our super talented young people DJing and Mcing. On a Wednesday we focus on all things health and our young people enjoy cooking healthy recipes and learn about the importance of good health and well being (check out our past blog post about our favourite recipes here: https://silxteenbar.wordpress.com/2015/05/14/cooking-up-something-healthy/) Monday at Silx is when the young people get creative and this is what this post is going to be dedicated to- ARTS & CRAFTS.

We make a pretty good team here at Silx and all of the workers play a vital role and have their strengths but when it comes to Art and all things Crafty then the two workers that excel at this particular area are June and Jackie- they are always coming up with fabulous ideas with the young people and making some wonderful creations. Just recently we have kitted out our Arts cupboard so if you are 11-19 and you fancy rolling up your sleeves and having a go at card making, glass painting, model  making, tie dyeing and much much more then Silx on a Monday night is the place for you.

Jewellery Making

This particular activity is very popular- especially with the girls, who knew you could have so much fun and create something so pretty from some beads and a bit of elastic.

Door Signs

All Teens love to have their own space and what better way than to put your stamp on your ‘patch’ aka your bedroom in your parents’ home 😉 than a door sign- Ryan and Abbigail created some very imaginative signs for their doors recently

Photo Frames & Cards

The best gifts are homemade; here are some of our young people making photo frames and cards for their Mam’s on mother’s day.
