Children and young people aged between nine and 13 are being invited to 'Get Creative With Rubbish' at two five-day art workshops at The Gallery of Loughborough University School of Art and Design on Radmoor Road in the town.

Over the course of the workshops, rubbish and litter will be recycled and transformed into beautiful works of art.
