In this fun-packed workshop budding artists and storytellers will have the chance to allow their imaginations to run wild, conjuring-up and then creating a collection of curious creatures and magical monsters under the expert guidance of noted illustrator Emily Hughes. Her debut children's book Wild will also be released by Flying Eye Books in June, and Emily will be giving kids a sneak peak during the session. Included in the price of the ticket will be a free Flying Eye comic book.
