Nick Sharratt’s Big Draw-Along
Suitable for everyone age 6+. Running time 1 hour.
Join acclaimed children’s writer and illustrator Nick Sharratt to find out how he creates his picture books. He’ll show you how to create a character like Tracy Beaker and share some of his very best drawing tips. Bring pencils, paper and something to lean on and expect plenty of chances to join in!
One of the features of the show is that Nick always invites the audience to come up and show him their work afterwards. He takes time with everyone who does so, signs books, has a chat and no-one is rushed on. It can add an hour to the running time!
We will also need a specific area of your venue for this to take place as well as a designated area for merchandise sales (lots of lovely books).
Nick Sharratt has illustrated close to 250 books. They range from board books for babies to novels for young teenagers. He’s worked with authors including Julia Donaldson, Jeremy Strong, Michael Rosen, Giles Andreae, Kaye Umansky, Kes Gray and most notably Dame Jacqueline Wilson and he’s also written around 40 of his own bestselling books.
He’s also the proud recipient of a gold Blue Peter badge.
