1,001 Creatures Storytelling & Workshop

September 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Suggested Ages: All, Adult Friendly

FREE

In celebration of the upcoming launch of 1,001 Creatures, a new children’s book by Finnish author and illustrator duo Laura Merz and Aino Järvinen, Scandinavia House presents a virtual storytelling event and workshop. From the dung-beetle to the blue whale, no creature is too humble or huge for this gorgeously illustrated, interactive exploration of the natural world. Author Aino Järvinen will introduce and read a chapter from the book looking at the zebra, alongside a visual presentation. Illustrator Laura Merz will discuss her career as an artist and the work behind the book, followed by a creative workshop on her zebra illustrations. Viewers of all sizes are welcome to join — including kids of all ages, and adults interested in learning about bookmaking and illustration.
