Project – Tunnel Books

Another bespoke workshop to help children explore cross curricular ideas about a project. By making a tunnel book, ideas will need to be explored and classified.

A tunnel book can be enlarged in scale and wall-hung. It consists of overlapping layers, partly cut out to reveal the background. Think of designing a stage set with the wings hiding and revealing.

The children can work on individual books or come together to create one per class, with each child able to contribute. Text can be incorporated and I choreograph the book, using the actual children’s drawing on each layer.

Within the workshop I also teach drawing skills, and encourage the children to use their imagination to explore the subject.

I usually give a short talk first to explain and then work across classes, in small groups and one to one.
