Take a journey to a special place where a bike can be made from anything. Yep, anything! Flour sack? Uh-huh. Bark? Sure thing. Milk pot? Definitely!
Award-winning author Maxine Beneba Clarke and acclaimed street artist Van T Rudd read to you from their beautiful book, The Patchwork Bike, and take you through how they made it. Why did Van choose recycled cardboard for the pictures? What inspired Maxine to write her first children's book? Do either of them really own a patchwork bike? Find out at this session!
