Description

Travel out of this world and into future earth, the world of Mechanica and Aquatica and view an exhibition of original illustrations. These steam-punk inspired picture books for older readers, created by Brisbane-based illustrator and author Lance Balchin, are encyclopaedias of Mechanica creatures with an engaging fictional narrative with a strong environmental theme. Participants will learn about the creative process behind these innovative, out of this world books and then design and collage their own Mechanica creatures to add to the Mechanica encyclopaedia and stretch imaginations beyond the reach of this world.

Find out more about the author.

Books will be available to purchase and be signed by the author. The recommended age for attending this session is 7-13. On the Library Mezzanine Floor.

This event is part of StoryArts Festival Ipswich and is funded by Ipswich City Councillors.
