Written and created by Lewis artist Alice Macmillan, with additional illustrations from Shetland artist Helen Laurenson, the Between Islands Children’s Resource Pack explores Shetland, Orkney, and the Outer Hebrides to learn more about each island and discover what makes them such unique places.

In this short video blog, Artist Alice tells more about the pack and its creation, as well as speaking of her involvement in the Between Islands Project, working with Helen, and what it has brought to her own practice as a self-employed artist.

Free to download, the Between Islands Children’s Resource Pack offers a wealth of fun and educational activities for all to enjoy – listen to interactive stories about pirates and witches, or even try your hand at translating Old Norse place names from the age when the Vikings ruled!
