Nurture your child’s creative talent at this State Library event.

Children aged 8 to 14 can explore the world of digital technology these winter holidays with State Library’s fun, hands-on Story Lab workshops.

Story Lab runs from 30 June to 11 July with exciting new workshops using creative programs including Story Scrapbook and MaKey MaKey, plus the very popular Scratch and stop motion animation workshops.

State Librarian Janette Wright said Story Lab workshops are a winter holiday favourite and encourage children to be creative and use their imagination to create stories using more than just words.

“Run by industry professionals, these workshops are specially designed to cater for different age groups (ages 8 to 11 and ages 11 to 14) and various learning styles,” Ms Wright said.“Story Lab is a fun program that develops children’s literacy, creativity and social skills in an interactive way.

“Creative children’s workshops add to their cognitive, language and emotional development and build capacity for lifelong learning, and Story Lab makes for a fun holiday experience.”

Young creatives will enjoy a range of new workshops that will develop their digital technology skills in a supportive, positive and informal learning environment. The day-long workshop series will run from 9.30am to 3.30pm each day (Monday to Friday) and all materials are supplied.

Tickets for all the Story Lab workshops are now on sale for $70 each, for more information see .
