What’s your story? We want to know!

Illustration is not just art; it’s about finding a snapshot moment that captures a story in one image.

Throughout the last year artist Tom Bailey has been turning stories from across the Wakefield area into illustrations that you can see on the walls of the Moving Stories exhibition. Now it’s your turn to add your story to the mix.

Get creative at Wakefield Museum this half term, as Tom leads you through how to find and tell your own personal stories and turn them into a striking illustration to take home.

This workshop is part of WordFest 2023.
