Josie Dom
Josie Dom and Lum cover


Firstsite, Lewis Gardens, High Street
Colchester, CO1 1JH
Accompanying Adult Free

Join children’s author Josie Dom in a lively workshop where you’ll start by creating your story character using craft materials. As a group we’ll talk about story ideas and then you’ll use items from nature to create a story setting where your characters can visually and orally tell their stories. No writing required, but special story inspiration notebooks available to purchase on the day.

Workshop suitable for children aged 4-11.

Also don’t miss Josie storytelling earlier in the day in our pop-up storytelling armchair at 12.30pm.

About the Author

Josie Dom returned to writing stories when she became a Mum. The combined influence of her own children and reading picture books with them inspired Josie to create a number of stories, many of which are waiting in the wings to take flight as books. Two stories have already been created as books and can be found on Josie’s websiteLum and Lum’s Mum – which tell of a little blue fluffball who you will love!
