Kings Place, Public Spaces

Have you ever seen a squiraffe? It’s a magical combination of a squirrel and a giraffe, very talented at spotting nuts from a distance. Join us for this free, interactive workshop as part of our Family Day at Kings Place and create your very own new beasts by combining existing animals, birds and sea creatures!

The inaugural Jewish Children’s Book Awards winners Carol Isaacs, a New Yorker cartoonist and author of The Wolf of Baghdad, and Sharon Spitz, an Israeli illustrator and graphic designer, will be on hand to share their drawing tips with children of all ages.
