CHILDREN from across Redditch queued up to take part in loom band workshops that have been running each Tuesday throughout August at the Kingfisher Shopping Centre.

Staff from toy storeThe Entertainer have been running the popular free workshops where they have been helping children learn new loom band techniques and designs.

The popular loom band activity, which has shot from obscurity to become one of the UK’s most popular child’s toys involves children crafting bracelets using a range of techniques to create different bracelet designs from coloured plastic bands.

Advanced loom banders can even make models, dresses and footwear.
