A workshop for older children exploring animals in writing and illustration with local author Alice Sargent. We’ll take our inspiration from the collections at Chetham’s Library and join a fun safari around the building to find the animals that may be hiding here. Learn how to develop story plots and illustrations and start to write your very own animal story.

Alice Sargent is a local writer and the author of The Fox of Chetham’s Library. She’s also a teacher who believes one of the best ways for children to learn is through stories. Alice’s inspiration comes from ancient buildings: she says she ‘tugs on the yarns that are lying around them, and the stories just unravel’.

For children aged 8+
