As well as steam trains and lots of fantastic indiepop bands, this year's Indietracks festival will once again feature a wide range of art and craft workshops for all the family! Today we can reveal the full schedule. The workshops are free of charge, except where stated below.
Saturday 7 July
2pm: Eco Bunting: Printing With Nature
Have a go at printing on ready-made bunting using the natural Hapa Zome technique. Create your own designs that you can take away.
3pm: Cake Club's Sugar Fuelled Cake Decorating Party!
Decorate scrummy home-made cakes with a wide range of decorating paraphernalia and icing (as pictured above!).
4pm: Super Spinners
Make a Zoetrope, a Victorian style animation toy consisting of drawings inside a round barrel - by spinning the barrel and looking through the slits in the side, your drawings come to life.
