Childhood Tales: Creating Memories with Quiet Book Activity, hosted by Azallea Artistry
This class is part of The School of Uncommon Knowledge
This class explores the purpose and functions of quiet book and allows participants to get their hands on creating a task that reflects their childhood. The lesson involves activities that enable participants to reflect on the simple games played during childhood, as well as past memories. This is a no-sewing activity but there will be a lot of cutting and pasting.
Participants are required to bring their own UHU liquid glue (the standard yellow) and some coloured felt for the activity.
About Azallea Artistry
Azallea is a full-time crafter and artist. Her first brush with Quiet Books was in mid-2015 when one of her regular customers entrusted her to create one for her son. She has no machine-sewing experience so creating a quiet book without that mandatory skill is a huge challenge. She managed to problem-solve that and to date she has made close to 31 books and counting.
Azallea loves working with children and art is one of the things she often engages them with, during her free time. Early this year, she took part in a piano painting project 'Play Me I'm Yours' and collaborated with talented young artists of Child at Street 11.
She hopes to continue to make quiet books for a living. Azallea also likes the idea of creating early books for young minds, some as young as 2 years old.
