There is lots on offer for the young makers and do-ers amongst us in our 2023 festival programme for Children and Young People. Along with our brilliant interactive writing workshops already mentioned, we are thrilled to be hosting the Big Library Lego Challenge, suitable for ages 5-14. If you could re-design the inside of your library how would it look? Apart from books what other fabulous features would you have? You’ve got two hours to design and build the library of your dreams and you might win a prize. LEGO® provided. There are 3 sessions over the weekend, from 9.15-11.15am, 11.30-1.30pm and 1.45-3.45pm.
Have you ever tried Zine-Making? The folks from Ipswich based creative group Rock, Paper, Scissors will be visiting us with artist Joel Millerchip, to help children, teens and families express their creative side. A Zine is a combination of collage, pictures, words and phrases, all compiled into your own journal to take home. A great way to develop creative writing and art skills.
