“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea”

Create your very own mini book and bookmark in our summer workshops inspired by Roald Dahl.

Design your very own bookmark, as well as a mini book, inspired by fellow booklover Matilda, in the Roald Dahl classic. Use watercolours, pens and pencils to create your bookmark which you will decorate with books that you have read. Remember to leave some blank to fill in later! Plus, learn how to decorate it with a mini tassel. You will also be guided in how to create a mini book, to use as a diary or sketchbook, or even to write ideas down for your own poetry or story!

Suitable For: Ages 5+

Materials: All materials provided.
