Enjoy 5 days of creating unique books of all different shapes and sizes. We will begin by making lots of paste papers and gelli print paper designs. Using Eric Carle as our inspiration we will create picture book characters. Simple printing and stamping techniques will be used to enhance our creations. The art of storytelling will be explored through the creation of fairy houses and all the imaginative adventures that accompany them. A variety of bookbinding techniques will be introduced and experimented with. Each child will come away with a treasure trove of exciting handmade books of their own making.
