What happens when you invite sheep to your house to help you sleep? What could possibly go wrong?
Join award-winning illustrator and author of more than 20 children’s books, Christina Booth for a sheepishly noisy bedtime story where sleep is in short supply. Then, while you don’t sleep, Christina will show you how she draws the sheep from her book and you can draw with her.
Anyone can draw a sheep, Christina will show you how. (This session is recommended for children from 6 to 10 years old)
Children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite sheep.
