Tactile book making workshops

Fancy learning how to make one of our fantastic tactile picture books?

ClearVision has an amazing 800 specially-created books with pictures designed to be explored through touch. These books are great fun, but also play a huge role in building children's touch skills and in helping them to understand pictures- vital if they're going to go on and use tactile maps or diagrams in school. We're holding Zoom workshops for volunteers interested in making more for our library. Anyone can give it a go, and they're free! They're running:

Wednesday 17th April 7pm
Monday 13th May 7pm
Monday 3rd June 4pm

They’re all the same (so you only need to sign up for one!) and will run for one and a half to two hours. Signup for each closes three days before the class, email to book a place.

In the mean time, visit our Making Tactile Books webpage for the basics and see the videos below.
