For ages 7-11+

Author and illustrator Jonny Duddle will show budding artists how to draw a fearsome, hook-handed pirate, give a quick glimpse at a treasure map, and share some of his top tips for creating your very own illustrations in this wonderful workshop finer than any you’ll find, anywhere in the Seven Seas.

Make sure you have your pencils and paper ready, and a clear space to work, as you draw along with Jonny.
