How to Create Characters Workshop at The Curve (Runnymede Stories)

Join us for a morning at The Curve, getting creative with drawing and learning how to create characters inspired by nature.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

Families are invited to get stuck into the world of illustration and drawing, guided by Nami Ralph (children's illustrator) and Stef Smith (Artist).

With Nami and Stef, be inspired by the nature and history of Runnymede, exploring what land, history and freedom all mean today through your own character creation.

Particularly inspired by the weird and wacky names we find in nature at Runnymede- 'Goat's Beard', 'Yellow Rattle' and 'Purple Emperor' we'll be creating our own worlds and characters to exhibit in The Curve.
