TRAVELLING BOOKS - NOW AN INDIVIDUAL PROJECT

As we are not meeting for the next few months, we are changing the Travelling Books to an individual project so our books won't be travelling this time round. We encourage members to continue working on these but the books will be individual work only.  We are encouraging members to share photos of their work, so we hope to see progess here, on Facebook and Pinterest, and in our monthly newsletter. 

NEW TRAVELLING BOOKS - FAIRY STORIES AND NURSERY RHYMES Dec 2019

Packs were given out to members containing instructions for paper folding, paper, etc to get our books started. The theme is Fairy Stories and Nursery Rhymes and the books are to be made by members as part of the process.
