Our workshops are highly interactive and designed to make your students think and speak up. Teams are asked to create storyboards which explore what is special and different about their school or college. This is a springboard for us to plan imagery, style, tone of voice and content for all future publications. In teams, students present their ideas back to the group. The workshops last approximately 90 minutes and can be delivered at your school or college. For additional work experience impact, the workshop can be hosted at our design studio.

The workshop was energising and started a real collaborative process. Words&Pictures brought our ideas to life in a way we never could have done alone. Deputy Headteacher, Guiseley School

- A suitable room with large tables, glue and scissors
- A key member of staff to participate in the presentations at the end of the workshop
We participated in this workshop because it gave our GCSE students the opportunity to work with professionals on a project which mattered; the creation of our school news magazine. It provided not only a worthwhile educational experience, but also led to the production of a school magazine that is the work of students. This is a genuine way to convey what a school is like. Headteacher, Scalby School
