Whirlgig Whiffle-birds

Celebrate Roald Dahl’s love of birds by making a hanging mobile of feathered friends.

For those of you looking for something a bit crafty to get stuck into! First you’ll find out more about the birds that Roald Dahl kept in his aviary, as well as some of the magnificent birds in his stories! Think of the Roly-Poly Bird from The Twits, the Swan from Billy and the Minpins, and the ducks in The Magic Finger. Then you'll create your very own hanging mobile featuring some of your new feathered friends. Use a variety of materials to decorate your creations to end up with a marvellous mobile to hang up at home.

This event also take place on Sunday 9 June.
