Make it! Wirral Libraries

We have been working with a small group at Bebington Library to recreate buildings in Port Sunlight on small scale as card models using rudimentary materials and equipment that most people would have at home. The group has worked really hard and the results so far have been fabulous. Like the buildings in Port Sunlight, no two models have been the same! A very eclectic selection of houses made and I think the group have enjoyed the creative process.

River Ribble Heritage Open Day

We were fortunate to be invited to deliver a creative workshop on the banks of the River Ribble at Edisford Bridge on the 15th September. We learnt lots about fly fishing and casting the line, wildlife and and soil sedimentation.
