I recently took part in the Storylines Family Days in Dunedin and Christchurch.  A special feature of the days is the number of pre-schoolers who come along and it was great to see them having a go at the activities, sometimes along with their older siblings. Parents and grandparents were there too, some in the background but others getting their hands on the colouring pens or scissors too.

Please get in touch, if you’d like me to visit your school or library to run a craft workshop. Schools can contract me through the Writers in Schools programme and libraries can contact me independently.
