From 6 - 10 July, Cressida held a week of ‘Summer Camp’ activity celebrating children’s innate creativity and showcasing the enormous wealth of talent across the UK.
Cressida was joined by an all-star line-up of leading authors and illustrators – including Eoin Colfer, Theresa Lola and Rob Biddulph – to encourage young creatives with writing workshops, drawing masterclasses and much more. We were lucky to get lots of sneak peeks into their notebooks and drawing pads in the gallery of magical ideas - check them out yourself and get inspired, or catch up on the fun below!
Please note: We sometimes link to third party sites, including YouTube, so children should not use Cressida's Creativity Summer Camp unsupervised.
