Did you know that Roald Dahl was also a photographer and framer? In this workshop you will discover the various ways that he was creative by doing the same kinds of activities yourself. Learn more about the creative process between Roald Dahl and the illustrators of his books to create gruesome Grunchers and marvellous Muggle-Wumps. Then work together as closely as Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake did to produce a class picture book, with everyone taking different roles to collaborate creatively.

All of the Roald Dahl Museums archive-based workshops use examples from their collection of Roald Dahl’s drafts, letters and notebooks that your group won’t see elsewhere in the Museum. You will visit the galleries but this is for a limited time and the focus of your session will be in their learning space.

You can combine all their workshops with their self-led Village Trail which will allow you to explore Great Missenden and its connections with Roald Dahl.
