Concertina Creepy Crawlies with Ruth Turnbull

Barber Home – 7 May

Artist Ruth Turnbull investigates creepy crawlies. Inspired by Wenceslaus Hollar’s 17th century prints, learn about insects and create your own folded sketchbooks and mobiles in our downloadable activity.

As home is now the new school, all of our Barber Home family resources link to the key stage 1 and 2 curriculum to support you in the kitchen table classroom – explore history, science and art.
