Asian Festival of Children’s Content
23–26 May 2024

Join us for an extraordinary workshop where parents craft an short comic book (children can join in too), capturing the enchanting journey of your child's birth story. "Birth Story" is a hands-on event designed to ignite creativity and cultivate a deeper connection between parents and their children.

The idea for the workshop emerged out of Dr Woo Yen Yen’s experience drawing and telling the story of her daughter’s birth when her daughter was a young child. Dr. Woo's daughter would eagerly flip through the pages, requesting to hear the story over and over again, creating a very special time between parent and child.

Dr Woo Yen Yen, along with the expertise of beloved children's storybook creator Josef Lee, will guide you through this creative process. In just one hour, you'll craft a personalized storybook that will be a cherished keepsake for a lifetime, creating lasting memories for you and your children. Don't miss this opportunity to embark on a creative journey that celebrates the unique magic of your children’s birth story.

Very limited slots available, please pre-register for the session to confirm your seats!
