Professor Elemental Creative Workshop

1.30pm – 2.30pm at Crawley Museum

In this one hour workshop the Professor will explore the wonderful world of making your own songs and stories from scratch. 

Professor Elemental is not your average rapper. He’s a comic book loving nerd, who wear a ridiculous hat and raps about cups of tea and having an orangutan for a butler.


Still, somehow he’s managed to make a living out of making music, writing books and performing shows all over the world. Even better, he’s been using stories and songs to express his feelings about mental health, identity, positivity and activism. All while wearing a ridiculous hat.


In this one hour workshop, 1.30-2.30pm on Saturday 11 May 2024, the Professor will explore the wonderful world of making your own songs and stories from scratch.


We’ll explore ways to use your imagination as a tool to say what you want to say- whether you want to share it with the world, or just create something for you to enjoy.

We’ll talk about the fun to be had with a secret identity. We’ll make up a rap which unlocks the secret to storytelling. We might discuss which animals would make the best butlers* (*usually the ones that look good in a smart waistcoat). It will be a lot of fun See you there. Splendid.
