Comic Club


Fantasic For Families

The UK's leading provider of comic art workshops in schools, libraries, festivals, charities and events.

Bestselling cartoonist / author James Parsons has delivered thousands of high-energy comic art workshops across the UK, teaching cartooning skills, literacy and visual storytelling through the super accessible medium of comics! Sessions have been delivered at hundreds of schools, libraries, events, festivals, major charities, museums and galleries - from WOMAD to the BBC, from local primaries to internationally celebrated cultural destinations such as The National Maritime Museum. And now delivering high definition online workshops direct to you!

With over 15 years full time classroom experience, Comic Club workshops are entirely bespoke to your requirements - each session is unique, and guaranteed to educate and entertain. I can reinforce any curriculum topics, subjects, or themes you suggest. I thrive in front of a class group, or a whole school! With a vast archive of thousands of unique approaches to cartooning, illustration, and papercraft, and an enormous amount of experience with all age groups from reception, through KS1 and KS2 to secondary schools, the focus is on developing storytelling and literacy skills, while creating new characters and sending them off on imagination-stretching adventures!

"Your workshop was amazing! I am in awe of your energy and our students had a great time. I’d ask you back in a heartbeat."-Donna Ling, Open Academy Norwich. 

“On behalf of us all, a MASSIVE THANK YOU for another fantastic morning of drawing, learning and creativity. The children are getting so much out of it- it is wonderful to see and be part of. The rest of the morning chat is all based on what they have done with you.” - Online workshop feedback, St Edmund School Maidenhead.

"You have been a real highlight in our year with lots of children telling us that their comic strip workshop was the best day this year!" - Emma Gale, Coldean Primary.

Whether it's superheroes, manga, or pop-up comics, the ancient Egyptians or environmental / topical issues - a unique, fun, and unforgettable creative experience is guaranteed every time! The infinite wonders of our imaginations are explored through stories and strips that stretch from the real world to the strangest realms of fantasy!
