Description

The Grand Imaginarium – Your Story Garden. Uncle Egg's garden adventures with Trace Balla.

Proudly presented by the Abbotsford Convent and Kids’ Own Publishing

Spring 2017 Season
Children are invited to let their imaginations flourish at the Abbotsford Convent this spring, as our stunning gardens are brought to life with award-winning children’s authors and illustrators through The Grand Imaginarium – Your Story Garden: a series of exciting book making workshops.

Following a magical tour through the Convent gardens, children will work with writers and illustrators to write and create their very own book to take home!

A collection of the children’s stories and illustrations will be weaved together to create a story-trail around the Convent, for other visitors to enjoy.

The Grand Imaginarium – Your Story Garden sessions are recommended for children aged 5 – 12 years old. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult. Adults can attend for free.

Monday 2 October – Uncle Egg's garden adventures with Trace Balla
Award-winnimg author and illustrator Trace Balla will introduce children to her beloved characters Clancy and Uncle Egg, and participants will create their next adventures inspired by the Convent’s garden!

Trace’s book Rockhopping has just been announced as ‘2017 Book of the Year: Younger Readers’ by the Children’s Book Council of Australia. Her other award-winning books include Rivertime, The Thank You Dish and Shine, and she is currently working very slowly on another graphic novella!
