from storyboard to printTM


As the name suggests, this workshop takes participants through the whole process of creating a book - from the storyboard through to professional printing. When the final story and illustrations are ready, our editing team check for spelling and grammar errors. The voice of the author is not touched. The final copy and illustrations then go into our design studio where our designers prepare each book individually and ensure that the final product clearly reflects the voice of the author. The books are sent to print and upon return the workshop group meets again for a book launch where the new authors and illustrators are celebrated.


Materials Included: Workbook, drawing templates, basic drawing materials, 2 books printed per participant and book launch.


Additions: ISBN numbers available for those who want to be able to sell their books.

Professional Development

Our facilitator workshops are designed to provide Community Care Workers and teachers with an insight into our programs and a  hands on trial of the activities that their students and clients will engage in through our workshops. By experiencing the process teachers are in a position to greatly impact the outcomes.  The facilitator workshop is a hands on full day session.
