July School Holiday Workshops

I've got a few workshops coming up in the July School Holidays so thought I'd let you know about them here as well as on my facebook page

Firstly in Wellington with CapitalE.

Award winning WoW designer and TV presenter Fifi Colston will be running 4 special workshops for us this July Holidays. Learn how to design and make some special wearable art. The workshops will be run to coincide with the publication of her new book Wearable Wonders. Where: Museum of Wellington City & Sea and Carter Observatory Dates: MoWCaS  Mon 15 July or Carter Fri 19 July Age: 8 - 14yrs Times: 10.30am - 1pm/2pm - 4.30pm Price: $25 (includes all materials) 

 and then in Christchurch for Kidsfest

Create exciting textures from paint and paper with Fifi Colston, writer, illustrator and TV presenter. Fifi shows you how she did the illustrations for 'Far Far From Home' and will guide you through making an artwork of your own.

Wearable Wonders

Wed 24 Jul 2013 @ 1:30pm– 4pm Wed 24 Jul 2013

Paint, glue & tape time - make a wearable art piece. Fifi Colston writer, illustrator and Wearable Art Designer will help you create your very own WOW garment. Be it a helmet, skirt or crazy arm decorations, you can use a favourite book character as your inspiration.

Plus I'll be running workshops for The New Zealand Post Children's Book Award Festival this Monday and Tuesday for selected, participating schools- we'll be making fun art to celebrate Ned Barraud and Gillian Chandler's wonderful shortlisted book 'At The Beach'. 
Then I'm off to St Peter and Paul's School to give a talk on Wearable Art and hopefully inspire the students to come up with wonderful ideas.

And on Sunday 23rd- look out for a fun craft I'll be making from my new book on What Now.

Gosh, it that way!
