WORKSHOPS | These Books are Rubbish

Wednesday, 27th October 2021 to Friday, 29th October 2021, 13:00 to 14:00

The Free activities below are for invited Schools from Children’s University Only.


Come and learn simple book making techniques, using scrap and found materials with Art and Design students from University West of England’s Outreach Group.

This fun, expressive workshop will enable you to explore ‘the book’ as a way of expressing creativity, and revaluate waste materials by adding value to what would otherwise be discarded. All materials are provided, but feel free to bring any writing/ images/ found materials you’d like to include.

The workshop will take place in Arnolfini’s Reading Room on the second floor and last approximately 45 minutes for children aged five and above, with an accompanying adult (max. three children per adult). Please book early to avoid disappointment.

13:00 -13:45 max 12 participants

14:00 – 14:45 max 12 participants
