Story Catching with Trace Balla

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

23 Sep 2019

Come and catch a story with award-winning author and illustrator Trace Balla (Rivertime, Rockhopping) and celebrate the Threatened Species Children’s Art Exhibition at Melbourne Gardens. In this family workshop, Trace will demonstrate how to use watercolour pencils and aqua brushes as she takes you through the process of making mini concertina books.

Trace will reveal how she sketches outdoors with her favourite tools, chat about ‘story-catching’, and guide you through the Gardens to spark your imagination and inspire the setting for your own tale. End the workshop with your own storybook creation to take home and share with others.
