While builders are busy on-site transforming Oxford’s The Story Museum into an even more inspiring and surprising place, events continue – and this April, their Easter Story Makers sessions offer the opportunity to enjoy a day of building stories with the learning team and brilliant talented associate artists.

Among them are The Phoenix comic artist Zak Simmonds, who’s running workshops on Tuesday 9th April 2019 for 8-12 years olds to discover how stories are told through comics – and have a chance to invent your own.
