Making Magical Stories: Family Workshop 6 - 7 Apr 2015

Work together as a family to create a magical story and bring it to life visually. A workshop for ages 4+ and their families with visual artist Jo May.

In this fun, creative workshop, you can take inspiration for your story from our exhibition Once Upon a Picture or from a family favourite fairy tale. To start, you will create a small backdrop that depicts the setting for the story, it could be an enchanted forest, a magical palace, an underwater land! Then make the different characters for your land using a variety of materials. You will then have the option of writing out a storyline and sharing your story with the group.

You will be able to bring your backdrop and characters home with you to continue inventing stories at home.
