Handmade Books Workshop for Children & Families
A children's version of the Handmade Books workshop with a story writing / drawing activity in the second half. This can be adapted to fit a theme - World Book Day, pirates and treasure maps, International Women's Day, fairytales and folklore, local history, Christmas, ghost stories...
Participants will create an origami map-fold book with pop-up pages and a sturdy hardback cover.

Then the fun part - fill the pages with stories, comics, treasure maps, poetry, or your own designs for mythical creatures and monsters!
