Come along and create your own comic character cartoons featuring you and your life! Or have a go at drawing your own ‘How to…’ comic strip based on something you’re the master at. ‘How to avoid going to bed early’ maybe or ‘How to make a money-spinning invention’?
British-Chinese illustrator Sue Cheung grew up in a house without books so she bought comics from the local newsagents and devoured them, ending up with a pile taller than she was! When she wasn’t giggling at her comics, Sue was busy clowning about and scribbling and drawing. Sue’s brilliant series, Maddy Yip’s Guide to Life is a lot based on her own childhood. Maddy loves being silly and no matter how challenging life gets, she manages to see the lighter side. The book is packed full of comic illustrations featuring Maddy and her family and friends, including hilarious ‘How to…’ comic strip advice from Maddy. ‘How to give a cat a haircut’ is just for starters!
For these events, you only need to buy a ticket for each child joining in with the activities. We ask parents/guardians to drop children off at the venue, sign them in, and leave a mobile contact number in case of emergencies. However, adults can attend for free if they need to stay or if their child is under 7 years of age.
