Exhibition / Festival
Quentin Blake is one of Britain's best-loved and most successful illustrators and children's authors. His first drawings were published in Punch when he was 16. He has illustrated over 300 books with writers such as Michael Rosen, Joan Aiken, and most famously of all, Roald Dahl. Quentin Blake writes and illustrates his own books as well and has also illustrated classic books for adults.
For many years he taught at the Royal College of Art, where he was head of the Illustration Department from 1978 to 1986. He has won many awards and prizes, was appointed the first Children's Laureate in 1999, and was made a CBE in 2005. In the past ten years he has produced pictures specifically for a number of hospitals both in England and France.
This summer, Rosemoor is giving you the chance to come and delight in the art of the man who brought some of your favourite book characters to life from Mister Magnolia to the BFG and Matilda. There will be five groups of pictures on display including the Green Ship and You're Only Young Twice as well as other Quentin Blake themed items.
Rosemoor's garden team is recreating Quentin Blake's Green Ship in the garden. Why not come along and explore!
