Event Details

We’ve recently been visiting schools with author Claire Barker. Claire is author of the Knitbone Pepper books, a series about a funny, friendly family of ghost animals who reside at crumbling Starcross Hall. Claire and Knitbone recently won the Simply Books X Factor award, voted for by 2,000 children, and were shortlisted for the Sainsburys Children’s Fiction Award. Claire and the schools team will be visiting over 1,000 children in just two days!

As the final event in the tour Claire will be holding this workshop at CCB featuring ‘the beloveds’, ghost animals who feature in Claire’s books. Children will help Claire to create a brand new ghost animal and then, using her Beloved Imaginarium worksheets and Heavenly History Timeline, create their own! Sparky imaginations essential, everything else provided! Claire will also be signing books. This event is perfect for 6-9 year olds. RSVP please as places are limited.
