Celebrating the collaboration between an artist and author

During summer 2022 Pete and Alice delivered free family workshops that were packed with smart sketches and spectacular science facts.

Pete revealed the secrets behind his illustrations, and shared some clever tricks that were guaranteed to make drawing super easy and great fun! Participants hunted for fun facts with Alice and turned scientific information into a creative and entertaining double page book spread!
