Fun Online Workshops

Family Workshops

The Children's Library @ the Library of Birmingham are continuing their 'Writing Black History' events with a series of six online family workshops.  
Over the course of 6 Saturdays, starting 9 January until 13 February 2021, we will be looking at the lives and work of the musician Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, the space scientist Maggie Aderin-Pocock, the cricketer Basil D'Oliveira, the author Malorie Blackman, the activist Doreen Lawrence, and the aircraftwoman Lilian Bader.  


At the end of each session, you will have learned about an iconic black Briton, other famous Britons in their field, and started writing a creative response to a major incident in their life.  


You can sign up for as many sessions as you want, just email http://childrens.library@birmingham.gov.uk  for a registration form.
