Author and artist masterclasses

We are very proud to host a brilliant online series of author and artist masterclasses. We link up with amazing writers and creatives who thoroughly enjoy sharing their ideas and inspirations with young people. It’s a joy to hear how well received these workshops have been – so for 2022 we are running more than ever!

Below is the list from May to December. These workshops in general are aimed at young people age 10 – 14 years; if we think an individual one is for a more targeted age group, that will be noted in the description.

We enjoy working with small groups of young writers and artists so keep the numbers quite small. Tickets will be released about two weeks before each event. If you have any questions at all, please do contact
