This class will be taking place in person at Hamilton House. Click HERE for more information about Hamilton House. If government restrictions prevent this, due to Covid, this course will take place on Zoom.

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 course 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.
