Cattlepiddlers and Other Critters

Join us for a hands-on junk modelling workshop, perfect for kids who want to be imaginative!

You’ll learn how Roald Dahl created the insect characters in his book James and the Giant Peach. Then, using this newly discovered knowledge as inspiration, you'll create your own fantastic insect out of junk. Give it a name and some special skills and it could have a starring role in your next story!
