Event description
Create your very own original mashimal with author Nova Weetman and illustrator Chris Kennett, co-creators of the magical Zooniverse series

About this event

Have you ever wanted to create a magical animal?

Join author Nova Weetman and illustrator Chris Kennett, co-creators of the magical Zooniverse series, as they guide you through steps to create your very own animal mash-up creations called mashimals!

Zooniverse follows the story of Noah and his best friend Blue who like to design weird and wonderful mashimals - and then bring them to life with the help of a magical book.

Participants will learn how to create characters with personalities, and take them on their own adventures to see what mischief they can​ get up to.

During the workshop, participants will be able to ask Nova and Chris questions about their work and experiences.

Please have paper and pencils at the ready for this online workshop. Parents and guardians are welcome to join in the fun!

Organiser of Children's Storytelling Workshop - explore Zooniverse

State Library Victoria is Australia’s oldest public library and a beautiful heritage building located in the heart of Melbourne. The Library’s distinctive spaces, from the 19th-century Ian Potter Queen’s Hall, to the contemporary theatrette are host to a diverse range of vibrant programming for all ages. Boasting beautiful surrounds, the Library is a welcoming place to languish on the lawn, play a game of giant chess or take in a pop-up event on the forecourt. Free exhibitions line the balconies of the majestic domed reading room; see Ned Kelly's armour and Jerilderie letter, Burke and Wills relics and a host of other treasures.

Enjoy books, music, newspapers, and free wi-fi and lockers.

Open daily, with a cafe and bookshop onsite.
