Pathways Plus Masterclass: Bringing Characters to Life

Saturday 27 November 2021

In this one day masterclass, industry experts will show you how to create appealing and engaging characters for a successful picture book.


Creating appealing, engaging and authentic characters is essential to making successful picture books. In this one-day masterclass with the award-winning Dapo Adeola (Look Up!) and acclaimed illustrator Chanté Timothy, you’ll explore character case studies, and use practical exercises and group sharing to transform your concepts into believable characters through movement, gesture and interaction, using story to bring them to life.

Post masterclass, you’ll also have an opportunity to develop and submit your character studies for written critical feedback. All you’ll need to bring is a character concept (detailed guidance will be provided by the artists when you sign up).

This masterclass will be delivered in-person with a limited number of attendees able to join online.
