Underwater Beasts: Sara Hymas Book Making Event
Sat 8 July 2017, 11:00 – 12:00 BST
A creative writing and book-making workshop for 7-10 year olds with Sarah Hymas. Come and learn about some of the amazing microscopic creatures that live in our oceans, then make a tiny booklet about them. Millions of plankton drift in our seas and rivers, so small they can’t swim against currents and too small for us to see many of them without microscopes. But they are essential to life on earth: providing half the oxygen we land-dwellers need to breathe.
This workshop will share more plankton facts and look at how we might protect where they live. Imaginative creative writing games will get everyone writing a poem or story they can set in a small concertina booklet.
No knowledge about the sea, writing or bookmaking required to join in and have oceans of fun.
