About Wildspark:

In Medlock, machines don’t come to life – life comes to machines.

A secretive guild of inventors have brought spirits of the dead back into the world, harnessing them in animal-like machines. Young Prue has joined as an apprentice, but she’s on a mission of her own: to bring her brother back to life. To find him, she needs to get the ghost machines to remember the people they used to be…

Congratulations Vashti!

Fully booked – Fantasy Map World-building Workshop with Vashti Hardy. Now at 11am and 2pm.

Both sessions are now fully booked.

Come and meet Vashti Hardy and learn about how she creates the fantastic worlds she writes about. Have a look at the original maps she drew for Brightstorm/Wildspark/Darkwhispers and see how maps can be used to help plan a story.

Work with Vashti to draw your own fantasy maps for a journey, imagining and creating your own fantasy setting and thinking about what creatures and dangers you might meet on the way.

Best of all, you get to make up the rules of your world!

This event is perfect for budding authors, young storytellers and future adventurers. Helpful for story planning skills and making writing accessible for everyone.

Vashti will also be signing copies of her new book Darkwhispers. If you are unable to attend the event but would like to order a signed and personalised book please order here.
