Sophia watches closely as Norman creates her idea.
The finished Ladybird Umbrella.
An invention by Sophia Carr, age 5 made real by Norman Veitch of Wearside Glass
Sophia met with expert glass craftsman Norman of Wearside Glass, who came out of retirement to make Sophia’s Ladybird umbrella invention at the National Glass Centre, Sunderland. The idea is simply to give ladybirds a place to keep dry. Sophia watched intently as Norman made her invention.
