On Monday 24 July from 8.45am the group started to arrive. By Tuesday 25 July at 3.30pm, 22 children aged 7-11 had made a book, worked on drama, adventure story ideas, weaving, lino printing, used the beautiful historic printing press, foil illumination, fabric collage and created and shown live performance/presentations to an audience of family and friends.
It’s incredible, every year-these children achieve so much in such a short time; they surprise themselves with how much they can do. Each session is only 45 minutes so they – and we – work very fast!
Parents’ feedback from Monday and Tuesday (Discover)
“[My son] had a lovely time and thank you for having him.”
