As I said earlier this week, I am really stoked about the family-friendly events coming up over the next two weekends at the Singapore Writers Festival – and I am especially excited that Chris Haughton, author-illustrator of one of our favourite children’s books, A Bit Lost, will be in town and conducting workshops during the festival!
Chris Haughton is conducting a grand total of four workshops, and two of these are ticketed events aimed at families with children between 4-6 years and 7-9 years of age.
The first workshop, Animation On A Phone, is for families with children ages 7-9 years old. During this workshop, Chris Haughton will go through some basic illustration steps and teach kids how to create a stop-motion animation creation with help from the Vine App and a smartphone. This event takes place on 31 Oct 2015 (Saturday) from 10am-1130am at the Learning Gallery in the Asian Civilisations Museum.
The second workshop, A Little Bit Lost, is aimed at children between 4-6 years old and is a hands-on handicraft workshop where Christ Haughton will guide kids in the art of illustration, using characters from his book, A Bit Lost. This parent-child event will be held on 1st Nov 2015 (Sunday) from 11am-12noon at the Learning Gallery in the Asian Civilisations Museum.
Tickets to both events are a trifling SGD$5 (cheap as free!) and are available through the Singapore Writers Festival website. They are selling out pretty fast, so be sure to book early!
