In connection with the Children’s Book Festival we are hosting a creative arts workshop based on the popular children’s book ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers. In this workshop, children will create their very own animal puppet companion to take on strange and wonderful adventures. The puppet could be a lost little penguin, or even a ferocious wild beast!

It’s Halloween and time to show off our scary side! In these creative workshops, children will design and make their own unique Halloween masks. The children will use a range of materials such as newspaper, fabric and feathers, while using collage and construction techniques. We will look at Venetian, African and animal masks to inspire our creativity.
