Storymaker Workshop
Storymaker Workshops are back in action! Formally known as Story Planet’s Alpha Workshop, the Storymaker Workshop combines everything you love about creative writing and expressing your inner voice. On Friday, November 13th Story Planet will be hosting 2 workshops for the PD day. The first instalment will take place from 10-12pm for kids grades 2-4. The second will be from 1-3pm for kids grades 4-7. As a brief refresher, during out Storymaker Workshops, participants work together to create and communicate one super unique story as an artist brings it to life on paper. At the end of the 2 hours, participants leave with their very own copy of the story they made! If you are interested in signing up please email us to confirm a time slot.
