Create a Picture Book Character

February 23 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Create your own compelling picture book character in this one-day online workshop with expert guidance from award-winning author and illustrator Claire Alexander.

You’ll explore some successful characters from classic picture books and consider what exactly makes them interesting to everyone they need to appeal to: children, parents, carers, teachers and publishers.

You’ll learn how to write a character study based on an animal of your choice, then bring it to life in collage, creating a colour vignette with personality and charm.

This workshop is also a fantastic opportunity to gain insight into a successful picture book-maker’s own practice, finding out about Claire’s published projects and learning insightful tips on how to present your ideas to publishers.
