Erin and Frances have created some fun online activities for you do at home!
Each week, throughout the summer holidays, we released FREE online creative workshops and writing activities designed by our artist and author in residence, Erin Fleming and Frances Stickley.
Erin has produced a series of video tutorials, showing you how to make some of the wonderful characters from the new 'In Residence' book and Frances has created a 'Storied Away' series of creative writing activities.
These activities will give you a special insight into their professions as a theatre designer and published author, offering top tips and helpful hints along the way.
