Rather than throw away old and damaged books, artist Julie Dodd makes beautiful art pieces out of them. We are really delighted that Julie has agreed to come and work with children aged 5+, as well as older siblings and parents over Easter. We are holding sessions in four libraries, so hopefully you will be able to get to at least one.
We will be using withdrawn book stock to create indigenous British tree silhouettes on the floor (remember Art Attack?) and then making our own individual trees to make a display with, and to take home.
Free drop-in event: the first part of the session will be making and photographing tree shapes on the floor and the last half hour or so of each session will be the mini-tree making activity.
a.m. sessions are from 10am – 12 noon and
p.m. sessions are 1 – 3pm
