This has got to be one of my favourite workshops! I enjoyed it very much. Tull has been amazing. He is patient and highly knowledgeable. He is a fantastic mentor and his guidance has helped me improve my illustration techniques. I certainly would recommend this course to anyone who enjoys gaining a deeper insight into the art of creating children's book illustration.

I loved attending the 'Writing and Illustrating a Picture Book Course' with Tull Suwannakit and am going to miss my Saturday evening creative sessions! Over the ten weeks, Tull explored all the aspects necessary to writing and illustrating a picture story book, including the possible publishing options. He spent loads of time working with us as individuals to discuss our work and encourage us to try different techniques to get the best effect. What a fun experience, thank you Tull!

I loved the course and still can't believe how much l've learnt. The tutor, Tull, gave advice and shared his wealth of knowledge in an informative, witty, kind, yet never threatening, way. He went over and above what you'd expect. l would recommend the course to anyone who is interested in writing and/or illustrating children's books. I even just loved what l learnt about painting with watercolours.😊😊
