Beatrix Potter for World Book Day

For World Book Day last week Maida Vale Library dedicated an event to Beatrix Potter, as this year is the 150th anniversary of her birth.

Jemima Puddleduck - World Book Day 2016 at Maida Vale LibraryA local fashion designer donated wool and pattern card and we developed a craft project for the day. About 25 local children and parents came in and used the wool and other materials to decorate stencils of some of Potter’s most famous characters such as Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle Duck, Tom Kitten, Mrs Tiggywinkle and others. These were then mounted on the card and a Potter-like background drawn.

Do drop in and have a look in the next couple of weeks.
