Animals of Imagination, Fable and Fantasy

This course is full but sometimes we do have people that drop out or we run a second course if there is enough demand. It is definitely worth putting your name on the wait list as we offer places to wait listed children very often. Send your name and details to Patricia Morse and we will add your name to the waiting list.


Lincoln Cathedral is FULL of hundreds of carved animals, gargoyles and grotesques telling their distinct story for all to read who know the language of symbols. In other areas of storytelling talking ducks and pigs are animals portrayed as having human characteristics.

Using illustrations from the past and the present, you will look at the relationship between animals and humans. This is your chance to design and make, draw and paint a Jabberwocky, Lemming, Jeremy Fisher Frog, or your own fantastic grotesque gargoyle animal of imagination.
