Family Workshop: Illustrating Utopia with Soofiya

Explore your own utopia in three dimensional colour at House of Illustration this January

When, Where

Come and explore how to build a utopia at our next workshop designed for children and their families.

Participants will be invited to think about what utopia means to them, before working together to turn their findings into colourful and collaborative large-scale illustrations.

We'll also be use plasticine and other unconventional materials to push the boundaries of illustration and explore our utopia. 

Your ticket to the workshop includes entry to 100 Figures: The Unseen Art of Quentin Blake in the final weekend of the exhibition.
