Book making workshop, The Free School, Netherlands
We had a wonderful morning at the Vrije School in De Bilt, The Netherlands in June making and crafting books.
I ran three separate workshops for the English classes: 7-8 year olds, 8-9 year olds and 10-12 year olds.
The younger group made twig books, and then created their own stories using simple English words, drawing and collage. Many did autobiographies.
The older groups made ‘hinge’ books, and their stories were so vivid and interesting! Thank you to the Vrije School for inviting me along for the day! What a magical school, and such creative, vibrant students. If you need a resident book maker at any point, I’ll happily move in!
