About this Event
Ideal for: Ages 0-9 years
Join Bristol based author and illustrator Karen George for a musical instrument making activity inspired by her beautiful new book, Mr Mornington’s Favourite Things. This heartfelt and gently humorous picture book explores the subject of dementia in an original way. You see, Mr Mornington forgets things, but his favourite things are gardening and eating cherry cake and playing his saxophone.
Karen’s creative and inspiring workshop will draw on the book’s theme of music and once everyone has made their instruments, you’ll get the chance to play along together at the end!
Karen George has spent A LOT of time drawing and painting. When she was small that's what she liked doing best. When she was a little older, Karen gained a first class honours degree in Fine Art followed by an MA from The Royal College of Art. Karen painted film sets for a while until, in 2009, she won Waterstones' 'Picture This' competition to illustrate Freddie and the Fairy for Julia Donaldson. This means Karen still joyfully spends lots of time drawing and painting... and now she writes too! Other titles include Hugh Shampoo and What Happened to You?. Karen lives in Bristol with her family and Dr Calamari the cat.
