The ancient Greeks were fascinated by the culture of Sparta, the city that produced such ferocious warriors and told many stories about their bizarre customs and witty sayings.

In this workshop, comics-writer Kieron Gillen and poetry-comics creator Chrissy Williams, assisted by historian Stephen Hodkinson, will introduce you to some of the these stories and help you re-tell them yourself in comic strip form. No experience or drawing skills necessary: stick figures and collage of existing images will be among the techniques covered.

With Kieron Gillen, Chrissy Williams and Professor Stephen Hodkinson.
