World Book Day 2019

Celebrating a love of reading and some of our favourite authors, we’ll be in Hackney libraries on World Book Day bringing popular stories to life with art.

We’re running two events after school on Thursday 7th March – One from Dalston CLR James Library and another from Stamford Hill Library. Both events run at the same time, on the same day! Just choose the one that’s most convenient for you.

Stage a Story

As part of the #ShareAStory campaign for World Book Day 2019, we invite you to bring your favourite stories to life within a miniature cardboard ‘set’.

Create your chosen book characters from mixed media materials, incorporating drawings and craft making. Place them centre stage within a backdrop of your design and – Ta daa – your story stands for all to see and admire!

We’ll provide all of the art materials, so all you need to do is turn up and get creative. The events are FREE to attend, no booking required and best suited to the 4 – 11 year old age group.

There’s many ways to create a 3D set, simply draw, cut out and stick on, or for the older ones, have a go at dressing up a peg doll and placing amoungst your own cut out props. Whatever the age, we’ve got plenty of ideas and techniques to keep your little artists busy.

Oh and the libraries will be handing out FREE BOOKS after the event!

We’re looking forward to seeing you … In the meantime, Happy reading! x
