Laneway Learning is running Glow Comics Trails, a celebration of Melbourne Comics artists in the city! Six artists have been commissioned to write mini comics about Melbourne after dark, and their comic panels have been pasted-up across the city, creating a trail for you to walk and reconstitute the stories. Each comic even has a glow-in-the-dark hidden element for you to find after dark!

As part of this event Laneway Learning is offering some extra special workshops. Emilie will be teaching some special classes on glow-in-the-dark painting and screen printing, zine making and mini comic crafting, and how to draw our beloved laneways and city scapes.

With the October launch of the Glow Comics Trail, this month provides perfect opportunity to experiment with wonderful glowy-paint while learning the skills of screen printing.

In this class, you will learn how to screen print onto a calico tote bag – practical in the day time, even better after dark!

All materials provided. Just come and have a wonderful time!
