A friendly beast? A hungry, child- chomping beast? A fairy beast with a princess crown?

Join illustrator Elissa Elwick, co-creator of the Little Adventurers picture book series, for an interactive illustration workshop. Help her create a fantastical beast and then learn how to conjure up your own.

Suitable for children aged 6-12 and their families.
