A double alert for today, February 13, at the Brontë Parsonage Museum:
'Everyone can draw': Illustration workshop for teens
Workshop with Chris Riddell
February 13th 2018 02:30pm - 04:30pm

We’re delighted to welcome Chris Riddell, the 2015-2017 UK Children's Laureate, to Haworth. Chris is an accomplished artist and the political cartoonist for The Observer. He has enjoyed great acclaim for his books for children, which have won a number of major prizes, including the 2001, 2004 and 2016 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medals. Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse won the Costa Children's Book Award 2013. His previous work for Macmillan includes the bestselling Ottoline books, The Emperor of Absurdia, and, with Paul Stewart, the Muddle Earth books, the Scavenger series and the Blobheads series.
Chris Riddell, an artist who has illustrated more than 150 books, believes that ‘everyone can draw’, and so here’s a perfect opportunity to learn from somebody who has mastered the craft. All you need, according to Chris, is ‘a notebook and a stub of a pencil’. So sign up and join Chris – with your notebook and pencil in hand – for a two-hour workshop devised especially for teenagers.

Chris will be happy to sign books and books will be available to purchase.
