On Saturday 15th July we joined two of the finest Syrian artists, Manya and Khalda, based in Manchester to get our hands dirty in a creative arts workshop. One of the themes of the Celebrating Syria festival is the importance of creativity. In this workshop, everyone was welcome to come and have a go at making their own inspired sculpture or drawing. It was great to see so many people get stuck in creating different things and having a lot of fun together.
