Vissen met | pêcher avec : Mathilde Brosset
In the context of her exhibition of original works at Le Wolf, the author and illustrator Mathilde Brosset invites you to take a stroll along the seaside and build fishermen’s huts inspired by her books. Come and spend 30 minutes, 1 hour or more with your family fishing for octopuses, whales or tritons in the forest of Le Wolf. Painting, collage and bricolage will be the order of the day for this illustration workshop for young and old.
Mathilde Brosset was born in La Rochelle in 1985. After studying at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Bordeaux and at the University du Québec à Montréal, she enrolled in the illustration department of Institut Saint-Luc in Brussels. She started to imagine her own projects for albums and obtained her professional bachelor’s degree with the illustration of Jacques Prévert’s La pêche à la baleine.
An alternative to traditional drawing, collage enables her to work on large formats and to adjust her composition as she progresses. Like moving the pieces of a puzzle until everything falls into place.
Me fais pas rire! (forthcoming)
For her first book to be published by L’Atelier du poisson soluble, Mathilde revisits a famous nursery rhyme. In Meunier, tu dors?, characters come together as though on the stage of a small theatre and cows fall from the sky.
In Le bout de la ligne, a counting book for toddlers, a child imagines that the ocean hides creatures that are far more impressive than simple fish … Her next work, Me fais pas rire!, will be released in April 2019.
Besides illustrating stories, Mathilde leads creative workshops at Le Wolf, in museums, schools, libraries and bookshops. Workshops focused on illustrating and creating albums, but also sculpture, wall paintings and puppet-making.
For children from 5 to 12 years old.
Passa Porta, Le Wolf
