Sarah Holding’s SeaBEAN Trilogy workshops were praised by the many schools involved in the Isle of Wight Literary Festival. One principal commented on the Festival’s School Programme, “It was wonderful to see our young people engaging so maturely with the important topics being discussed and leaving excited with a renewed passion for literacy”.
“It was the best day of my life!”

Each of the workshops and talks by Sarah Holding involved up to 75 children working in teams to create large three dimensional boxes covered in their own ideas for a book. These were then put together and displayed in foyers and receptions for parents and visitors to see. The boxes were inspired by the time-travelling classroom featured in the SeaBEAN Trilogy.
