Art@work at the Mini Maker Fayre

Just popping by to introduce myself, I’m Kelly Kelly from BOOM! Social, I have been bought in by Sharon Mee the Art@Work project manager to work with young people on the social media side of the project. I provided the live feed for the Art@work stall at the Makers Fayre in September working with Novi and Sian. The girls ran the workshops in conjunction with The Curiousity Hub and Arthropod Arts and did a fantastic job of engaging the children, Who were making squishy foam monsters and lego robotics.IMG_0041
