Join author Lucy Reynolds and illustrator Jenna Herman for a day of nature-themed workshops in the magical setting of West Horsley Place!
Jenna and Lucy will take children through a wonderful day of nature walks and creative workshops. Children will learn how to pause, notice, and focus, finding inspiration from the beauty of nature all around us. They will then learn techniques to help turn these ideas into poetry & illustrations.
Jenna & Lucy aim to give young poets & illustrators a ‘Poetic Writing & Illustration Toolkit’ to use when working on their own creations in the future. Each child will go home from the workshop with a beautifully illustrated poem of their own, and the chance to exhibit their work at West Horsley Place if they wish! Your child does not need to feel particularly talented in writing or illustrating to attend this workshop, just enthusiastic about stories and nature!
