Josephine Birch leads this worksop for all ages focusing on Character design. In the workshop you will develop characters from scratch. Take your imagination on a journey, get inspiration from every day items, and create something magic with the simplest of tools. We will each create a character and design a wanted poster, with the aim that everyone will have something finished to take home. The session will cover narrative storytelling, typography and ideas generation.
