One of Notting Hill’s finest bookstores, Book & Kitchen, has a couple of exciting events lined up for September!
First up, a ten-week masterclass in children’s picture book writing and illustration starts that month, taught by Dr Karenanne Knight. Starting on Monday 15th September, the course is perfect for anyone that’s got an idea for a children’s book – whether actually properly planned out, only roughly jotted down, or even just kept in their heads for the moment – as at the masterclass, you’ll be able to find out exactly what it takes and what’s involved to develop such a book. The course will include special guest visit from publisher’s and children’s authors, which will help attendees find out more about not only the creative process, but also about the publishing side of things.
The ten-week course costs £399, which includes a copy of Dr Karenanne Knight’s The Picture Book Maker. More details on the course can be found here: www.bookandkitchen.com/ai1ec_event/masterclasspicturebookmaker/?instance_id=931
Also in September, Book and Kitchen will be hosting the Poster After Life exhibition by artist Gosia Łapsa-Malawska. The exhibition is based on a collection of old posters that Gosia photographed and collected in Europe and South America. The Polish artist – who is now based in London – has created new artworks from neglected ones, offering a fresh outlook on our streets and cities that is tinged with nostalgia.
The exhibition is on from Tuesday 2nd to Friday 29th September (closed Mondays) and entry is free.
