Grimm & Co
Grimm & Co is a creative writing centre based in Rotherham aimed to encourage children to learn and publish work of their own.
I was fortunate enough to be asked by the boys at Side by Side to lend a hand with some of the last tasks before opening day on Monday (29th Feb 2016).
Oli and Dave have generously donated hours and hours of their own time to the project. You can count the tally in the lavatory and see just how many!
As one of a number of volunteers the first section of my day was spent assisting in prop making. Adding to the collection of weird and wonderful items to be found inside the enchanting Apothecary shop. Giants teeth, Mermaid scales and bunnies tails to name a few.
We then set about the task of styling the many window displays surrounding the period building. Broomsticks, books and bizzare looking ingredients draw you into Grimms doors.
I highly recommend you venture into the mystical world of Grimm & Co to see for yourself. All purchases made in the Apothecary shop go back into running the program.
