Thank you to everyone who came to centre17 last Saturday. Bebop baby spun some funky choons as we all were hard at work creating. I took some photos of your wonderful creations. See if you spot yours.

Creative Kids gallery of craft from the William Morris Gallery

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!
