Whatever you fear, come close my dear
You’re tucked in safe for always here
And I will never not be near
Because of our love umbrella

Author Davina Bell and illustrator Allison Colpoys produce the kind of charming picture books that quickly become cherished objects in the lives of their readers. Their latest, Under the Love Umbrella, is a celebration of the loving support networks that help to keep us safe.

In this workshop – perfect for ages five to ten – Davina and Allison will share how they work together to create their delightful, quietly touching modern allegories, rendered in wild technicolour. Budding authors and artists will learn how to pair words and pictures – and pops of colour – to tell the stories that matter most to them.

Get under the love umbrella for a morning with an energetic pair of creative sparks.
