Working in Early years education for the William Morris Gallery can be at times challenging. It certainly is a lot of fun Interpreting the adult world to digestible constructs through craft ( not to mention that it should be beautiful), games, song and food. Here are a few of things we have made over the last few sessions. The Walthamstow Toy library has been invaluable in helping with play toys. Those little crafters are just amazing. Enjoy!
