Wed, 28 October 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Join Annet Schaap, one of the Netherlands best loved illustrators and translator Laura Watkinson at this draw along session and  hear the story of Lampie, the lighthouse keeper’s daughter who has to light the lanterns and keep ships safe from the rocks. This charming, prizewinning story has as many twists as a mermaid’s tail and is set to be a modern classic.

Make sure you have some pencils and crayons ready! We’d love to see your pictures.  Please tweet @otsfestival    And draw along if you like by downloading this illustration https://www.offtheshelf.org.uk/wp-admin/upload.php?item=4724
