Creative Residency Programme: Artist-Led Imaginative Play

Build, shape, create! Journey through an imaginative world of play that you help to make with Woods in the Books Creative Resident Myra Loke in a blend of story and play based on Laura Carlin’s A World of Your Own. In each parent-child bonding session, kids will learn to germinate their own ideas, hone creative thinking, and practise fine motor skills with play dough crafts.

You might even see your ideas in a new interactive play space coming to Woods in the Books in August!

About the Creative Residency
Inspired by a desire to extend the reach of picture books beyond the book, the Woods in the Books Creative Residency supports creatives to create a body of work that designs experimental literary forms or programmes to engage the community. Over a 6-month period, our resident will explore and push the boundaries of picture book literacy.
