Tutor – Emma Burleigh 

Saturday 2 November, 10.30am - 4.30pm and Sunday 3 November 10.30am - 3.30pm

From jewel like medieval manuscripts to present day graphic novels, word and image can complement each other in beautiful and imaginative ways. Join award winning 'graphic novelist in progress' and comics artist Emma Burleigh to explore the interplay of word and image, exploring narrative, and teasing out your own personal stories. Draw on myth, folk tale, poems and life experience for inspiration. By the end of the weekend you will have completed your own graphic short story in inks, paints, pencils or another media of your choice. 

Suitable for all abilities. Basic materials provided, although we recommend bringing your own watercolour brushes if you have them. Please wear clothes suitable for a studio environment and a bag to take your work home with you.
