The workshop begins with a walkthrough of the Womanifesto exhibition to learn more about the camel library project and Womanifesto's history.

2. A presentation of the “Three Lady Ducks"

This is followed by a presentation of the "Three Lady Ducks" story, initiated by artist and co-organiser Phaptawan Suwannakudt. Explore the enchanting narrative and draw inspiration from its unique themes.

3. Unleash Creativity in 4A Lab

Transition to a hands-on experience in 4A's second space, the 4A Lab. Guided by Shuxia Chen, families will embark on a creative journey, crafting their own collaborative version of the "Three Lady Ducks" story.

4. Craft Your Book Using Provided Templates

Each family will receive a template of a 10-page book, thoughtfully designed by the 4A team. With all materials provided, let your imagination run wild as you fill the pages with your unique stories and illustrations.
