Looking for a great creative activity you can do from home these school holidays?

Join author and illustrator Tai Snaith to imagine a place you might find yourself, and create a make-believe world from your dreams!​ Tai will read from her latest storybook,You might find yourself, and then follow her in this special workshop to paint a watercolour background and build an imaginary landscape using cut paper.

To build your own imaginary landscape, you will need:

  • Two sheets of A3 watercolour paper
  • An A3 piece of cardboard (old box is fine, big enough to fit one of the pieces of paper)
  • A simple set of watercolours
  • Paint brushes, preferably a small, medium and large paint brush
  • Water for washing out your paint brushes
  • Scissors PVA glue and stick to apply
  • A hairdryer for drying your paintwork

Suitable for 9–12 year olds, their parents and carers.
