Alison Lester’s book-making workshop

Join one of Australia’s best-loved creators of children’s books (including the contemporary classic Are We There Yet?) in this special storytelling and illustration workshop for children aged 6–11. The workshop will draw on Alison’s award-winning latest picture book, Kissed by the Moon, which celebrates a child’s wonder at the natural world. Children will be inspired by nature and the changing seasons to write a story and illustrate a book using watercolours.
