Abbotsford Convent,
venue of workshop
Could there be a more visually inspirational venue for writing? Even kids will appreciate the grandeur of the Abbotsford Convent, and feel themselves drawn to another time and place as they engage their imaginations and execute the book writing, illustrating, and publishing process.

The Convent site is an arts, culture, and learning precinct. The first floor contains creative arts businesses, cultural, and not-for-profit organisations. A wellbeing centre is housed in the east wing; artist studios on the second floor house painters, poets, illustrators, photographers and designers, some of whom may even pay a visit to the Pop-up Book Factory workshop!

In this educational workshop with Kids' Own Publishing, children aged eight and up are coached through the publishing process: thinking through, writing, and illustrating their own book.

Is your child a creative author-in-the-making? Participants will visit acclaimed children's authors and illustrators in their Abbotsford Convent studios, learn writing and illustrating techniques, create artwork for their book, and publish a digital version and a hard copy, eight-page origami book. There are five iPads available to borrow, or you can bring your own.

"Kids' Own Publishing is a pioneering not-for-profit arts organisation that empowers children, families and communities from diverse cultural, social and linguistic backgrounds to share their stories through artist-led processes and community publishing."

Alongside a Kids' Own artist, the Pop-up Book Factory will be visited by one of the Convent's own authors or illustrators in residence. He or she will drop in during the workshop, to ensure "quality control" at the Factory!

Take the Capital City cycling and walking path for a picturesque ride or walk to the Convent (no parking on site).

Bookings essential.
