Create Your Own Picture Book!

Create Your Own Picture Book!

Saturday 5 October & Saturday 6 October, 2pm

Create your very own picture book with expert tuition from talented Latvian illustrator Martinš Zutis. In this hands-on creative workshop learn how to create a memorable central character, how to map out the beginning, middle and end of a story, and how to turn the story in your head into a proper paper picture book. Be bold, be brave, be as imaginative as you can and create an amazing piece of art to take home to show your family and friends - you could even organise your own storytime to read it out loud to them!

Martinš Zutis is an illustrator, author, animator and graphic designer. His illustrations, comics and animation stand out with their unusual characters, word games and visual language. He won the The International Janis Baltvilks Prize in Children’s Literature and Book Art in 2015 for his debut book. Some of Martinš’ work is on display in the café as part of the exhibition The Horse: A Latvian Illustrators Showcase throughout October – make sure you stop in and have a look during your visit!
