Weston Lit Fest: Creativity on the Cusp: the art of illustrating for children

Felt tips to the fore in this taster session of illustrating for children’s books led by acclaimed children’s illustrator Paula Bowles.

All materials provided, though you are welcome to bring your own if you wish.

Paula Bowles has worked as an illustrator since she graduated from Falmouth University in 2007, and recently relocated to Weston-super-Mare. Her publisher list includes Simon & Schuster, Nosy Crow, OUP, Little Tiger Press, Barrington Stoke and The National Trust. She is also the illustrator of the new ‘Mazy the Movie Star’ picture book series written by Hollywood star Isla Fisher. Her latest solo author/illustrator book, ‘Tiny Crab is a Tidy Crab’ published in 2022, won the Portsmouth Picture Book Award 2023, and she recently won the Lancashire School Library Service ‘Brilliant book Award 2023’ for her young fiction book ‘Marv and the Mega Robot’ written by Alex Falase-Koya.

You are welcome to book for both the writing and illustration workshops, or just for one. The writing workshop runs from 12pm-2pm at Unit 27 and you can book it here
