Join children's author and illustrator Jane Porter for a fun half-term story time and collage workshop. 

2:30pm Jane will read the story of Tiny Penguins and the New Baby. Have  you ever wondered who does the odd jobs in every home? It’s the tiny penguins! Find out how they helped little Gertie when she was feeling sad in a storytime session, then create your own tiny penguins picture using collage – and make your own tiny penguin finger puppets to take home!

10:30am and  4:30pm Jane will read the story of The Boy Who Loved Everyone (written by Jane and illustrated by Maisie Paradise Shearring), shortlisted for the 2021 Derby Children’s Book Award.  Hear all about how Dimitri was inspired by a real boy, then join in with some collaborative storytelling as author Jane Porter draws YOUR ideas live. Then make your own collaged ‘tree with heart-shaped leaves’ to take home.

All workshops will be set up at Covid-safe, socially distanced tables. Collage materials will be supplied in sealed envelopes for each child. Hand sanitiser will be provided at the entrance to the venue.

Adults must wear masks when moving around the building, but once you are seated at your table, you can remove your mask.  Children under 11 years do not need to wear masks

Jane Porter will wear a face shield throughout the workshop.

Card payments preferred.
