Everyone and will only take ten minutes to create and you can walk away with your creation. The workshop is free.

Martin will also be around to talk about his new Zine “The Mysterious Doors of Stanley Halls” which launches this week and features a local family who travel back in time. This will be the first of a seven-part story. You will be able to pick up a copy of martins Zine at the market.

I’ve been creating superheroes since I was a little kid, and I really look forward to seeing what creative ideas South Norwood has” Martin Eden

What will the workshop involve?
Martin will show you how to design the outline of the superhero. He will then invite you to think about your character’s powers and identity the various parts of the costume (mask, cloak, boots, belt, gloves).

What will you Get?
You will be able to come away with your own work!

When, Where and what times?
The Clock-tower Market opens at 10am and closes at 4pm on the 3 rd of September. We will be hosting drop in sessions this entire time. Just pop down whenever you want. The workshop is only 10 minutes’ long

What is Inventing South Norwood all about?
Celebrating the spirit of invention in South Norwood, this new cultural programme is funded by Historic England High Street Action Zones Programme. Its intention is to support exciting cultural activity and get people to come out and enjoy their historic high streets.

These Invention points are a great chance for people to come and talk to the Stanley Team about the ‘Inventing South Norwood’ programme and learn how to get involved in our volunteer initiatives. We will take photos of all your work for the upcoming Invention Archive.
