Crafting Better Stories : Sexist book amnesty!

May 5 at 10:30 am - 11:30 pm


Has your child been gifted a problematic picture book?
Did you get half way through story time and realise you were reinforcing toxic gender norms?
Do you need to rid yourself of some sexist stories but balk at the idea of either chucking books or passing on the poison??

We have a solution!

We are offering a sexist story AMNESTY : bring your crap picture books in and we’ll ‘recycle’ what can be salvaged for a kids craft session creating new & improved versions with them!

We’ll also give you £2 credit for your terrible books so you can choose something rocking instead.
If you DON’T have terrible books, you can also come along and help us create some creative, inclusive new stories anyway 🙂

Bring your crafty young feminists to the shop on the first sunday of every month – ideal for all children, of any gender, aged 4-7!

Places are ust £2 on the door (to cover materials) but places are limited so do let us know you’re coming – there will be free tea & coffe for grown ups!
