Artist Ania Bas led the second day of our literary inspired course in collaboration with Wimbledon Bookfest.
On Day One (click for more details) we concentrated on what makes a charismatic character and on Day two we looked at what makes a sensational storyline. Our findings are to be compiled into a ‘Zine’ aimed at budding authors. The title of which will be:
INK – A basic guide to building a Children’s Book
As always we began the afternoon with a warm up – for our minds, bodies and fingers.
We then spoke about the magazine we were creating and looked at some examples of the size and type of ‘riso’ print we would be using.
We recapped the decisions of the senior editors (those children attending both days of the course).
We look forward to seeing how all this work is included into our Zine – which will be ready in about a month. We have listened to children’s opinions and gathered all the material which will be pulled together with a designer over the next few weeks and then circulated.
