Mad Hatter’s Teaparty workshops

It’s the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.  When I was very small I had an LP of somebody telling the story and I loved it!  Since then I’ve had various different editions including my absolute favourite, by Ralph Steadman.  His illustrations are just fantastic.

I’ve been working in a local library to make bits and bobs to decorate a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party to celebrate.  So far we’ve made some Floral Fascinators and March Hare Ears to wear on the day and some peculiar mushrooms as well as some giant flowers to plant in the garden.  Next we’ll be making a Cheshire Cat. It’s worth checking to see if your local library is running any events to celebrate.
