Knited icecreams

Every Bag Book is handmade and takes an average of seven hours to make. In addition to a team of skilled craft artists making the books, Bag Books is fortunate to benefit from the help of over one hundred volunteers.

Bag Books’ volunteers assist with a wide range of craft skills from knitting, sewing and sawing to painting, sticking and drilling. They are invaluable and help to keep down the cost of book production.

On average, Bag Books benefits from eight days volunteer assistance each week.

Bag Books is always on the look out for volunteers with a range of skills. We are especially keen for experienced sewers and knitters but all levels of craft skills are welcome along with a genuine passion for creating high quality multi-sensory resources for people with learning disabilities.
