Workshops at the the Sydney Children's festival

The Sydney Children's festival says - Its a storybook dream come true - and so it is.
With only a few weeks to go to the festival – I thought I would post a couple of sample booklets up here on my blog – to show you what we will be making at the fun'n'furry storybook making workshops.

The festival sounds like its going to be a “fully fun packed” event (wish I was a kid again) with performances from Erth's baby dinosaurs, Grug, Taronga Zoo....and more. Some of the other fantastic workshops include: Acrobalance circus, Cartoon Character designing, Compost Creatures, Costume Making...etc see the full list of workshops here. There's going to be storytellers and loads of other free activities to choose from, for 2 whole weeks!...... Defiantly a gigantic artistic playground of fun!

I am going to be running two workshops – where you’ll be the author of your own self made book, you will learn how to make a fun'n'furry (farmyard animal) dog, cow, frog or horse storybook using Twospoonfulsofsugar's original designs, environmentally friendly card, faux fur fabrics and embellishments to make your animal unique - then bring out the writer in you and write your own unique story.

Workshop 1 is on Thursday 30 September 2.00pm – 3.30pm, you will have the choice at making a cow or a dog storybook

Workshop 2 is on Thursday 7 October, 2.00pm – 3.30pm, you will have the choice at making a frog or a horse storybook

So at the end of the workshop you’ll have a handmade storybook to take home and cherish.
