A cracking cartoon workshop with Harry Venning!

Saturday April 16, 10.30am-11.40am Venue: Shropshire Wildlife Trust, 193 Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury SY2 6AH. Admission: FREE!

Cartoons are great and so are cartoonists. Become part of this elite branch of the arts at one of Harry Venning's exclusive cartoon workshops.

Learn how to transform a flat piece of paper into a riot of laughs, an explosion of adventure, a cacophony of sound and a gobsmack of disbelief. All shot through with the real emotion that comes from drawing eyebrows in just the right position.

Discover the many uses of the humble asterisk, how to do a caricature, when to use a speech bubble and what the Eskimo brothers said to each other in my favourite joke ever.

Have pen, will travel! The workshop has already been performed in schools throughout the UK, at the Edinburgh festival and at team building events in Dublin, Sicily, Rome, Basel and Budapest.

"The workshop was brilliant- the children, parents and grandparents had a grand time and really did release their inner cartoonists" Margaret Holborn, Head Of Education Centre, The Guardian.

"I loved releasing my inner cartoonist with the talented Harry Venning" Nina Conti, ventriloquist superstar.
