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.

William and I had a very interesting and often hilarious time putting (our presentation) together – fortunately we both wanted to be thoroughly prepared, so we refined and refined… we enjoyed ourselves, aided and abetted by the helpfulness of you and yours behind the scenes, the warmth of the audience, and the pleasantness of the setting. Speaking at your festival was an altogether happy experience. I only wish I had managed to organise listening to many of the other talks, which I really wanted to do… Many congratulations to you and all your team, and all wishes for Festival no. 3!

I'm now back at my desk after Ann Cleeves' mammoth book tour and wanted to send a note to say a huge thank you for hosting such a fantastic event for us. It was a definite highlight out of the 30 events!
