Family Workshop: Book Cover Design with Julie Vermeille

Make a book cover for your diary or journal taking inspiration from our Book Illustration Competition exhibition.

When, Where

Get inspired by our Book Illustration Competition exhibiton and design a fabulous book cover of your own, with guidance from illustrator Julie Vermeille.

Make a cover, spine and back, using ideas of self portraiture - from drawing yourself in a mirror to collaging pictures from magazines to create something personal. Using outline drawings and touches of watercolour, you will learn how to use tracing paper to collage from photos and magazines, and come away with a brand new cover for your diary or journal, or any other personal book.

Workshop suitable for children aged 5+. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Adults who are not accompanying children will not be admitted.

Book your child’s ticket below; adults pay on the day. Tickets grant entry to all of our exhibitions too.
