    Saturday 11th November
    1.30pm - 4.30pm

    Using a collection of material from old books, you will construct your own tunnel book during this 3 hour workshop with artist Jane Stewart. We have a selection of material here you can use, or bring your own illustrated books. Tunnel books or peep shows are a series of cut-paper panels placed one behind the other, creating the illusion of depth and perspective. Often, these are engineered like an accordion, with the two boards pulling apart and the illustrated panels lined up and viewed through a front peep-hole or viewer.

She will share stories collected in beach huts in Frinton and Walton and tell us more about this friendly and welcoming community who have given her a sense of what it is to be a ‘beach-hutter’.  Copies of Beach Hut People will be for sale after the event.
