Alice's adventures and the now iconic illustrations used to bring them to life will be the starting point for this five-week illustration course

Course dates: Tuesdays 23 February, 1 March, 8 March, 15 March and 22 March 2016

We’ll explore character illustration, depict narrative scenes and sequences and develop creative ideas from the real world. You’ll have the opportunity to explore different media and techniques each week, and receive practical guidance throughout the course on a group and one-to-one basis. You’ll also hear from British Library curators, who will lead an exclusive tour of our popular Alice in Wonderland exhibition.

This practical course is led by illustrator Sion Ap Tomos with contributions from British Library curators.
