Book Bench 'The Wizard of Oz'


Our talented artists this year have the wonderful theme of 'The Wizard of Oz'. The team make preparatory sketches then together we distribute parts of the bench and the children will paint every part of the bench.

The Bench Project is part of a literacy project between Chorley Council and Edge Hill University College. The team will also work with a student teacher researching Frank Baum, the author of 'The Wizard of Oz'.
