Magical You: Creating Costumes

Express yourself with costumes at the second of three family workshops with illustrator Ben Connors.

When, Where

Get stuck in to a variety of techniques to create fabulous costumes that express your identity – then wear them home!

Ben Connors and his daughter Nila are our first ever Family Illustrators in Residence. From January to March, they’ll be running a series of three connected workshops for 5-12 year olds and their parents or carers, all around the theme of celebrating who you are.

Your ticket includes entry to all House of Illustration exhibitions open on the day so you can get inspired by Quentin Blake, George Him and W. E. B. Du Bois.
