WORKSHOPS, CLASSES, SEMINARS

I run workshops, classes and seminars for children, young people and adults about literature, languages and comics. Below is a list of recent activities. I also prepare tailored workshops and seminars for specific audiences and like collaborating with artists to explore creativity even further. Get in touch if you'd like to talk more. 

Je dirige des ateliers, des séminaires et je donne des cours pour les enfants, les jeunes et les adultes autour des thèmes de la littérature, des langues et de la BD. Vous trouverez ci-dessous une liste de mes activités. Je prépare également des ateliers sur mesure en fonction des publics. N'hésitez pas à me contacter pour plus d'infos.
