Korky Paul shows you how make a new hat for Winnie in a fun-filled workshop combining story telling and drawing and using your imagination.
Korky Paul is an energetic, interactive illustrator who welcomes you to the wonderful world of Winnie the Witch. The thing that truly brings the spark of life to Korky’s illustrations is his spontaneity and unaffected manner of drawing. Korky shows the fledging artists that every smudge and every line can be transformed into something weird and wonderful.
Known only to himself as ‘The World’s 13th Greatest Portrait Artist and Dinosaur Drawer’ Korky may just have time to draw ‘Perfect Dinosaur Portraits’ for you to take home. Magical things always happen when Korky draws with his Magic Markers…
Korky Paul was born in Harare, Zimbabwe in 1951 into a family of seven children. His real name is Hamish Vigne Christie Paul. He enjoyed a wild and privileged childhood in the African Bushveldt. At an early age he was reading comic books and scribbling cartoons. In 1986 Korky Paul met the editor Ron Heapy at Oxford University Press who commissioned him to illustrate Winnie the Witch. It won the Children's Book Award in 1987 and has been published in more than ten languages. Korky has since illustrated more very successful books for Oxford, Random House, Penguin and many other publishers.
