Comic Club

Tuesday 12 November - 10 December, 4pm - 5pm

Love comics?  Explore the colourful and exciting world of comics with one of our Story Catchers and create your very own in our brand new Comic Club this summer! 

Bring to life your imagined superhero characters and learn the art of comic book storytelling in this 6-week creative course designed for children aged 8-12 years.

Course schedule

Week 1 - Welcome 

Welcome to Comic Club!  In our first week, together we will introduce a selection of comic books and play fun ‘get to know you’ games to create a safe, creative and sociable space before exploring fun ways to create a character. 

Week 2 - Panels and Story

Learn all about comic panels and how to tell a story through multi-panels.  Get creative with your storytelling, basing your stories on imagined or real-life experiences. 

Weeks 3 and 4 - Create your comic!

This week, we’ll start to bring together everything we have learnt so far to create our own comics, working individually or in pairs.  You are welcome to build upon the story you created in Week 3 or make up a new one! 

Week 5 - Comic swap!

Get comfy as we sit back Comic Swap and read each other’s creations!  With a fun game to finish, we’ll be looking back at what we have learnt over the course and celebrating our achievements. 


5-week course.  Each weekly session is 60 minutes, suitable for children aged 8 – 12.  Children may attend the session unaccompanied as long as parents/carers leave contact details with the reception team. 

Previous Comic Club members are welcome to attend the course as many times as they like, to simply continue working on their current comics and/or begin a whole new comic each time!

£15 per child (5-week course). 

Comic Club has been developed with support from Lydia Wysocki and Comics Club.
