Level 39 Comic-O-Rama

Tuesday 9 April 2019

What makes a great comic? A hero. An origin story. A problem…a big problem!

In this workshop, you will decide your hero’s superpower, secret identity and weakness. You will figure out the how, what, where and why of their origin. And the disaster that they save us all from. Use our cool stencils to give your comic book some graphic oomph!

Facilitator: Brendan Barnett

Ages: 7-11

Level 68 A Perilous Quest

Wednesday 10 April 2019

You’re about to set off on a quest – a journey fraught with obstacles and, sometimes, a little bit of danger. Don’t worry though, all our heroes embark on their quests with a Hero’s Backpack, filled with objects that may prove useful in a tricky spot. You will create a map of a strange land, profile your hero and his/her nemesis, fill your hero’s Backpack, then set off on an adventure story!

Facilitator: Laura Hartnell

Ages: 7-11

Level 52 The Chosen One (NEW)

Thursday 11 April 2019

There’s a knock on the door. A letter falls through another portal! You have been CHOSEN to be the saviour of… the recently discovered world’s last dodo, a gang of garden gnomes, an alien blobfish? It doesn’t matter what it is. What matters is that you have to save it!

Channel your inner hero in this comic-making workshop!

Faciliator: Brendan Barnett

Ages: 7-11

Level 73 Magipocalypse

Friday 12 April 2019

Life is great in the sorcerous worlds of level 73: learning spells, mastering your magic wand, breaking the fundamental rules of magic…wait! That last one unleashed utter chaos. It’s up to you to find the magical ingredients needed to make the world right again! Bring your enchanted adventure together in a comic book.

Facilitator: Brendan Barnett

Ages: 7-11

Level 13 Choose Your Own Adventure

Wednesday 17 April

Ever wondered what would happen if a character in a book went through a different door? Or jumped out of the window? Or just turned around and walked away? Use ‘branching’ storylines that video games rely on to create a many-ended story where the reader chooses which path the character takes.

Facilitator: Ben McKenzie

Ages: 9-11
