4. A Journey Through Words

Christ Church C.E. Primary School

BookBench inspired by how a book can feed your imagination.

The process started with the idea that a book is best when shared, so Christ Church CE Primary School asked the artist Tom Wilson to draw two silhouettes on the bench. The children then designed the bench around the question ‘who are they and what are they reading?’, also thinking about how reading enlarges your imagination, creativity, language ability and knowledge!

Venue: Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery
