Lucy Volpin: Big Character Drawing workshop with author and illustrator

Join Lucy Volpin and learn what it is like to be an author/illustrator! - Schools only event

Being wildly dyslexic, Lucy never imagined that she would not only be illustrating but writing stories too. Usually using pencils and watercolour, Lucy loves to capture expression and movement in her work, along with humour and silliness. Lucy likes walking, singing and making a mess in her studio.

Lucy wants children to bring their imagination for the character drawing workshop, where they will have a closer look at her work as she explains the process. She will show them how she gets from sketchbook to finished art work.

She will also be reading from her hilarious book, packed with painterly puns and ripe for audience participation!

Want to be an artist too? Lucy loves questions!

Schools only event ages 9-11 years

Thank YOU for hosting us so brilliantly on Sunday. Dad and I had a great time and were both really impressed by the very smooth running of your festival. It was a total pleasure being there with you, Helen, and the team. Congrats to all concerned on a job well done. It was fun to be a part of it.

Feedback From 2015 Festival

Kate Adie's Desert Island Books was thoroughly enjoyable! I had no idea she was (a) so glamorous and (b) so delightfully funny.

Feedback From 2016 Festival

I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).
