School excursions to Paper Bird have the opportunity to be inspired by writers and illustrators at work in their studios here and to participate in workshops focusing on illustration, creative writing, and other forms of story making, including oral story-telling, song writing, and performance poetry.
Programs for children with special needs are available, making use of the incredible collection of books and art materials.

“We all had a wonderful time at Paper Bird yesterday. The students were all very much inspired by the books, the artwork, the artist’s studios and most of all by Samantha’s wonderful style. They were happy and chatty all the way back to Duncraig with many positive comments. We will definitely come again to work with the illustrators. You have a wonderful set up.”

“Our Pre-Primary class attended an excursion to Paper Bird Children’s Books & Arts, it was a wonderful engaging literacy experience for the students. The students were able to meet Author Liliana Stafford and hear a background behind her story books. The children thoroughly enjoyed this rich literacy experience & it was very exciting knowing that Paper Bird is where Liliana writes & develops the stories. The play ground out the back was a fantastic addition, the students were able to eat their lunches & explore the nature scape playground. Thank you Paper Bird for a interesting & engaging excursion.”
