Adelaide Writers’ Week – Kids’ Weekend

Kids’ Weekend returns with two big days of stories, games, painting, printing, parades and performances.  Join in for some FREE family full-on fun!

Evelyn Roth’s Nylon Zoo

Evelyn Roth’s magical Nylon Zoo returns with her animal costumes, parades and a storyteller inside her custom made creature. This year they will host a big blue Beluga whale and a mighty salmon for journeys into the deep.

Nest Studio

Imaginative, educational and lots of fun, Nest Studio is back with an exciting program of printing, publishing and creation. This year they will again run the letterpress and make picture books, while their Little Artists will work some watercolour magic.  New this year is bookmark making, where they invite kids to create the official Adelaide Writers’ Week bookmark.
