Write and print your own comics with author Emma Pass and artist Duncan Pass as Markeaton Park becomes a printing press for the day!
First, Emma will help you create a cracking story with a magnificent hero, a mischievous villain, a brilliant beginning, a marvellous middle and an exciting ending. Then Duncan will show you how to turn your story into a comic strip. After that you’ll make printing plates and print them on one of Duncan’s hand-built printing presses, which are made out of 150-year-old washing mangles.
By the end of the day you’ll have your very own full-colour comic to take home and share with friends and family. All materials are provided, and are non-toxic.
Parents/ Guardians do not need to purchase a ticket.
Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult
