STEPHEN BAYLEY


Space Workshops, Story Reading and Writing Workshops.

The Space and Story Reading workshops are ideal for children in Year’s 1,2 & 3. The workshops last between 40 and 50 minutes and start with a tour of the Universe, this is followed by stories from the Astrobods series and a Q & A session covering writing, reading, and space. Stephen also has a number of writing workshops, space themed and otherwise, for children in the age range 6 – 11. (workshops can be tailored to suit the needs of the school)

Stephen is also happy to carry out adult writing workshops – these can be tailored for those wishing to write for children or adults.
