or a football pitch?' Over a series of three morning
workshops each child will work with artist sisters Merrie
and Edwina Ashton to make a book expressing their ideas in
shapes, words, colours and artwork - and take it away with
them. It will give children the chance to show how they
imagine the look, experience and sensation of what is to
