Pow… Sock… Smash… Batman spends so much time fighting crime and pouring over clues in the deep dark Batcave that now he is completely exhausted. But when he finally gets a holiday, he realises he hasn’t got a clue how to relax! He tries baking to see if that will help him calm down, but it turns out he’s not very good at it. What else can he do to just chill out? 

During this workshop, hosted by Batman himself, children will help The Dark Knight to find ways to de-stress, as we create Utility Belts crammed with calming contraptions, and make colourful capes to help unleash our Inner Heroes of Happiness. 

Led by Paul Timoney, a multi-disciplinary artist who makes stories, poems, performances and pictures, and regularly leads creative workshops for people of all ages, including past First Fortnight festivals.
