londonprintstudio offers Free Comic workshops for 16-20 year-olds

londonprintstudio is running free workshops in 'Comics and Comic Production'   this year for 16-20 year olds on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 5-7.00pm, led by industry professionals and comic interns.

Part of the londonprintstudio comic collective project, artist Karrie Fransmen tells us it's funded by the John Lyon's Charity so it's an excellent opportunity to pick up some tips and trick of the trade.

The first workshop is on 18th January with a session from screenwriter Ben Davies on developing characters, narrative and story arcs and there are events coming up with Woodrow Phoenix in February and Al Davison in March.

Call 020 8969 3247 to book a place or pop in. There is a £5 booking fee but it will be entirely reinbursed when you turn up.

From scores of high quality applicants, a group of young graduates - Karrie Fransmen, Isabel Greenberg, Freya Harrison, Joe Kelly, Rachel Emily Taylor and William Goldsmith - were chosen to showcase the best of young British comic talent at the londonprintstuido.

For six months they will be interning at the studio, working on an ambitious comics anthology and running workshops for young members of the local community.
