“I made a wish to my rabbit light. I wished that I could come and play in the Hush room everyday.”
Hush is Lyra’s ‘Bedtime, Hawaii & Rabbit’ installation with soft furnishings, chill-out room, interactive lighting, materials for den building and stimulus for role-play and storytelling. More than 500 children and their carers have taken part in Hush so far. Highlights include a residency by author and illustrator Catherine Rayner culminating in events at both Craigmillar Community Festival and Edinburgh International Book Festival.
'I really enjoyed the project, I learnt so much from working with the children, Lyra and Edinburgh International Book Festival. Thank you once again for choosing me to be the illustrator in involved. It was a real privilege.' Catherine Rayner, Author.
