I’m very excited to begin offering workshops in my studio in Glasgow! I’m going to be doing lots of different programs, some for kids, some for grown-ups.

The first workshop focuses on picture book creation and is for the nine to eleven year-old set. This is a five week course¬†where we’ll be learning how a picture book is designed, the steps involved, how to craft your idea into a story with a beginning, a middle and an end.

We’ll be making art to illustrate our stories (we’ll also be talking about how best to use illustration and graphics to enhance the story as well as trying out lots of different mediums like collage, photos and painting).

And finally, the kids will learn how to make a book out of paper (called a ‘dummy’ in the trade) that will hold up to time and many many readings! Once they can do this, they’ll be able to make countless books and will be able to make dummies to show editors when they all grow up to be illustrators and writers!!

This class is full but I’ll be setting up others soon and for different ages as well…watch this space!
