Roehampton craft event to mark bicentenary of Dickens' birth

First published in Video by , Senior Reporter

A Victorian craft making event took place over the weekend to coincide with the bicentenary of Charles Dickens' birth.

Children aged six to 12 years old were invited to make Dickensian-themed crafts at Roehampton Library, Danebury Avenue, on Saturday, April 14.

The event was organised by City Reads Dickensian Childhood, which aims to educate youngsters about the famous author.

Craftsters could have a go at making a top hat, or a replica of Mr Babbage's difference engine.

Shabab Bakhsi, five, Sahar Bakhshi eight and Marta Waluga, six, are pictured donning their hats like the Artful Dodger.
