ArtLab | Make Your Book Week Costume with Victoria Reichelt
Let your favourite book be the inspiration for your Book Week costume: make a life-size book cover you can wear to become your favourite book!
Acclaimed artist and local treasure Victoria Reichelt, who is our next artist to feature in the Children’s Gallery, is no stranger to the annual Book Week costume and will be on hand to assist you. We’ll provide everything you’ll need for your costume: cardboard book cover and straps, and craft materials for personalising your book including paint pens, coloured paper, scissors, glue, pom poms, googly eyes, stickers and more!
