CHILDREN will be able to teach their teddies to fly at Redditch’s Forge Mill Museum over the Easter holidays.

And furry friends that complete the challenge will be rewarded with a special sticker.

The Superted theme coincides with the museum’s comic book exhibition Retro Marvel Now and young visitors are being urged to dress their teddies as super heroes.

The series of challenges, which also includes jumping out of a building and posing for a picture, started on Tuesday (March 31) and will run until Saturday, April 11.

For older children, there will be a chance to take part in Marvel drawing workshops with artist Lee Bradley which take place on Wednesday (April 8) and Thursday (April 9). The morning sessions are aimed at children aged from eight to 12 with older youngsters having their chance in the afternoon.

The workshops have been funded by the Redditch School of Art Trust via Redditch Arts Council and places can be booked by contacting the museum on 01527 62509.
