World Book Day 2020 at Nercwys Primary School

Literature Wales and Theatr Clwyd today teamed up to celebrate World Book Day by running a day of creative writing and art workshops for pupils at Nercwys Primary School in Flintshire.

Children’s Laureate Wales, Eloise Williams and Theatr Clwyd’s resident visual artist, Gwenno Eleri Jones worked with pupils from the school to write their own pieces of flash fiction before creating concertina books filled with prints inspired by their stories.

The day is part of a week-long series of workshops for Eloise in north Wales as her mission to engage and inspire the children of Wales through literature continues.

The stories and books will now go on to be displayed at Theatr Clwyd’s ‘Clwyd Room’ exhibition space from 9-13 March.
