CityRead London Comics Workshops “Your Country Needs You … To Make Comics!” @ Heston Library
Apr 28 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm


As part of CityRead London I am running comics workshops for 8 – 12 year olds across London.

Join comics creator Karen Rubins to make your own comic strips set during the First World War. Put yourself in the shoes of a Londoner, and decide how you would react to the propaganda posters of the time.

Details of all the CityRead events happening in London can be found on the CityRead website.

These workshops are free but booking is required. Please check with the individual library for details.

Comics Plus is a library service where you can borrow digital comics and read them on your computer or device. And it’s all free! So to celebrate this amazing technological advancement, come to Hounslow and Heston libraries for a very low-fi comics workshop!

Join Karen Rubins, artist of The Phoenix Comic’s  Shivers series, to make your own comics! Create the scariest monster you can think of, and a hero to confront it, then write and draw your own comic strip to decide what happens when they meet.

This session is open to children 8 – 12 years old.
