In line with this term’s theme of ‘children’s books’ we invited author Robert Crowther to come and visit us… Robert brought a new dimension to our work – we went 3D – we went pop-up!

Robert is one of the leading creators of pop-up books and shared his knowledge and skills with us during two workshops – one for primary aged youngsters and one for secondary.

Many thanks, Robert, for inspiring such a high level of engagement and creativity (and not just from our youngsters)…

Have a look at our workshops in progress as, armed with scissors, pencils and glue we set about popping up.

Robert demonstrates some of his own work

It starts with a lot of drawing and cutting and then at the end it springs to life…
