This Halloween, join us for a special workshop as we visit the award-winning illustrator and author Satu Kettunen’s Studio in Helsinki, Finland to learn about her book Alma’s Monster Party, a wonderful story about fears and how to conquer them!
Alma’s family has moved to a new house. It is big, and bleak, and far from the neighbors. Alma is certain that they aren’t alone: she sees shadows fleeing in the corners, and hears footsteps of the grokes. Alma’s mother is a party planner, and that gives her an idea: She will throw a party for all the monsters and ghosts!
In the workshop, Satu will show us how to create characters and character traits with a special collaging technique that she applies in her illustrations projects. Together, we will then create a bunch of whimsical, scary or funny monsters to to invite to a Halloween Party! After the workshop, share images of your own Monster Party creations by tagging #ScanHouse and #MonsterParty on Instagram.
