Having launched in 2014, the brainchild of Chichester Copywriter’s Katy Lassetter and fellow writer Vicky Edwards, the fourth Story Factory Chichester workshop will take place on Friday 8 April with an umbrella theme of ‘What happens next?’
In another fun and creative session for children aged 6-13 guest experts will help youngsters to kick-start their imaginations and to explore stories through words, art and music.
Previous sessions have been extremely well attended, with special guests including authors, such as Chichester Copywriter’s clients from Story Massage. Local artists, publishers, chocolate makers and newspaper editors have also shared their knowledge and experience budding young creatives.
Story Factory’s resident musician is Mike Fry, who this time will be helping the children to create a song based on their stories. Other guests will include Abi McMahon from Summersdale Publishers, artist and teacher Jessica Venables and photographer and teacher Rachel Poulton.
Taking place at St Wilfrid’s Church Community Hall, Sherborne Road, Chichester (10.00-4.30), “The objective is to get children to use and develop their imaginations,” said organiser Katy Lassetter.
“We know that children come up with the most amazing and creative ideas and stories and produce some really exciting work. It’s not about perfect spelling or being a fantastic artist, the idea is simply to get the ideas flowing, let them fly and to have a lot of fun in the process.
“We’re thrilled to have such fantastically experienced guest experts joining us again and for the support from Sussex Arts Academy and our wonderful sponsors, JSPC Computer Services and also Love Snowberry Vintage Tea Parties who provide super goody bags for the children.”
Places are £28 per child with a limited number of discounted places available to low-income families. For further details and booking contact Katy today.
