About this event
Special opportunity for families with children aged 8 to 12 years to learn comic drawing techniques with super talented cartoonist Ben Poultney. Part of Wandsworth Libraries’ Spine Festival programme, to celebrate Empathy Day. A chance for children to be inspired, learn, chat, and enjoy making their own art.
Children will get the chance to draw their own cool comic square on the theme of friendship and empathy, with the chance to share their art at the end of the workshop and have their work put together into an amazing digital display for Wandsworth Libraries, as a legacy of Spine Festival.

Ben regularly teaches drawing workshops for children and adults of Wandsworth, and he has worked on many creative projects including with St. George’s Hospital. He runs children’s cartoon science classes, and has spent time volunteering and drawing at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
