Please note that due to COVID-19, this course will be delivered on-campus with reduced student numbers and physical distancing measures in place.

This course is for anyone who has a desire - or seeks the time, space and opportunity - to illustrate their own story, poem or graphic book. Participants will be given guidance by an experienced lecturer and encouraged to complete one small book by the end of the course. The class will also concentrate on materials such as gouache, watercolour, pencil and mixed media. Students should bring their own materials and importantly, an original story or piece of text that they want to illustrate to the first class.
