Creepy creations take over the library in Yate, South Gloucestershire
FUTURISTIC robots and scary monsters took over Yate last week.
Artist and designer Peter Margerum led a Creepy Creations workshop at Yate Library last Tuesday.
Almost 90 children enjoyed getting stuck into the arts and crafts activities.
Using household materials such as wood, metal, plastic and textiles they created a range of creepy models ranging from robots and animals to creative monsters. Parents were able to join in too, helping out with drilling and cutting.
South Gloucestershire Council said that this year’s Summer Reading Challenge based around the Creepy House theme was going particularly well.
A spokesman said: "Over 6,700 children have signed up in South Gloucestershire already this year, including around 1,500 in Yate alone, and the library service is expecting to break all previous records.
"The Creepy House theme has really grabbed children’s imagination and the stickers and incentives have proved particularly popular."
The Summer Reading Challenge is free to enter and runs in all South Gloucestershire libraries until Saturday, September 14.
The challenge encourages children to read and maintain literacy standards throughout the summer holidays.
