In our final artist video for Kids’ Home Publishing Series One, venerable artist John Wolseley shows us what marvellous fun making an 8-page book can be – you can splosh and dribble, rub paper to make patterns, cut and paste and stick on all different kinds of fragments.

Watch John create a story around the life-cycle of a beetle local to his forest studio, using all the techniques which have made him a world-famous artist and naturalist.

This is a mini masterclass in creativity as play, with a beautiful reading of the finished book by the author.

Make your own 8-page book and send it to readmybook@kidsownpublishing.com to be read by Brigid in the Book Cubby.

Presented by Abbotsford Convent and Kids' Own Publishing.

Supported by the City of Melbourne COVID-19 Arts Grants, the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, and the City of Yarra.
