Storytime Sunflowers at The Bright Emporium with Fiona Woodcock

last updated 08 April 2016

What a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning with the family: Storytime Sunday at The Bright Emporium with the very talented creator of Hiding Heidi, Fiona Woodcock. LM

Fiona began with a reading from her beautifully illustrated picture book which evokes real feelings of nostalgia for anyone who was a child during the late 1970’s/early 80’s. The artwork is so exquisitely stylised with a memorable, stand out colour palette and designed in such a thoughtful way; think Rosie’s Walk by Pat Hutchins for that clever design and use of colour, or, A House is a House for Me by Mary Ann Hoberman and illustrated Betty Fraser, for style, texture and little details.

After story time, Fiona hosted a mini workshop, where children could design their own sofa for the little Heidi character from the story, and make a sunflower disguise like the image from the book.

We’d like to thank Fiona for such a well thought out craft workshop, and for a thoroughly enjoyable morning for both adults and children! Thanks also to the families who came along — we look forward to seeing you again!

In July Fiona held the official book launch for Hiding Heidi at the Bright Emporium with Simon and Schuster and you can read more about it here.


There was also a great blog tour from some of the top book bloggers in the business, including Picture Books Blogger and Library Mice which you can read about here.
