Classes

Single session

There's no set format for these Workshops, sessions with Christyan are formatted to the individual's writing or illustration needs - at any level - with the intention of giving an overview of the current children’s book market including what publishers are looking for.

Previous students have chosen to learn the basics of storytelling, taken a thorough look at plotting, brushed up their illustration and Photoshop skills, received advice on what makes an engaging central character, created illustrator model sheets to bring it to life, learned to break down a story... it's entirely up to you!

The full session includes lunch with Diane and Christyan, during which you can gain a different perspective on your work or discuss any further aspects with Diane.

If you don't have time for a full 5-hour session, or perhaps your project is still in the early stages, Christyan also teaches by the hour (@ £40 per hour, min 2hrs).

Did you know?

Did you know that Pooh Bear was inspired by Christopher Robin’s toy bear, but it didn’t look cuddly enough so E.H. Shepard drew his own son’s bear, Growler, instead. However, Growler didn't survive for long and was soon to be eaten by the neighbours dog!
