Story and Create

What is the Workshop?

Amazing stories that inspire the imagination are part and parcel of the Bright Emporium. We want to celebrate the brilliant stories that our artists create, from- Storm Whale to Supertato, Alan’s Big Scary Teeth to Grandad’s Secret Giant, there is a story for everyone. So join us for a story reading by the fabulous Sophia and Safiya, then get ready to be creative- we will have 30 minutes of craft, mess making, creative madness for all to enjoy.

We suggest that our mini creators bring an apron with them!

Who are Safiya and Sophia?


After graduating from Kingston University London during the summer of 2016 with a First Class degree in Illustration Animation (Ba Hons), Sophia joined us as Gallery Assistant, and has since moved into the role of Portfolio Curator for The Bright Agency.

Sophia has been a huge part in the building of the gallery team, and says it’s wonderful to see how the space is received by the local children and families.




Safiya is a design educator who implements her background knowledge of graphic design, the museum learning sector and education to develop themes and concepts to engage audiences who come from different backgrounds and cultures.

With a background working as a a professional ESL teacher both abroad and in the UK she is always exploring new methods for developing participant skills for a more participative and sensorial experience of learning.
