Making the tactile pictures for Mole’s Sunrise
January 21, 2011

The line drawings that Candice drew of the characters and scenes in the book were sent to Peter Boex so that he could carve the feely pictures.

Peter is a sculptor and has been supporting Living Paintings for many years. Peter lives and works in Cornwall. For more information about Peter visit his website at

The completed carvings are then pressed in our thermoform press by volunteers.

Watch volunteer Simon Peel press the Mole’s Sunrise carvings.

At the moment, volunteers are busy painting the plastic feely pictures for Mole’s Sunrise.
