Can you spare a few hours a week to help create beautiful, multi-sensory books?
Bag Books is a UK registered charity supporting people with learning disabilities through the provision of multi-sensory books and storytelling. Founded in 1993 and based near Clapham/Vauxhall in South West London; Bag Books is the only charity in the world publishing multi-sensory books for people with severe or profound and multiple learning disabilities.
Every Bag Book is handmade and takes an average of seven hours to make. In addition to a team of skilled craft artists making the books, Bag Books has been fortunate to benefit from the help of over one hundred volunteers.
Our volunteers assist with a wide range of craft skills from knitting, sewing and sawing to painting, sticking and drilling. They are invaluable and help to keep down the cost of book production.
We would like to invite anyone with a range of craft, woodwork or sewing skills to our workshop for a trial day to see how our books are produced, meet the staff and try out some of our activities!
