The first workshop saw an artist from Letchworth Art Centre showed the children and young people how to make Dream Catchers, which are said to stop you having bad dreams, and Bows and arrows using willows.
Some of the teenagers progressed to making a life size sculpture of a person using willows.
Further sessions took place involving making mosaics and producing graffiti-style art.
