I regularly run animation, illustration, drawing, book making and visual storytelling workshops as part of my work. I get a huge amount of inspiration from encouraging creativity in people of all ages, from primary school children to grown-ups. It's amazing to see what people can produce in such limited amounts of time!


Have a look at some photos from previous workshops on this page, which I'll update regularly, and follow the links to watch the films.


If you would like me to run a workshop for you, please contact me with any questions or ideas you may have. I'm all ears! 

Smoke Signals: Portffolio Workshop Feb 2018

'Shipwrecked' and 'Where's My Chips?': Portffolio Workshop July 2017

I worked with 14-18 year olds at Mostyn Gallery as part of their Portffolio programme, helping them to create short animated films, inspired by exhibitions at the gallery and the seaside town of Llandudno. Click on the pictures to watch the films!

Humanimation: End of the Road Festival 2014

I ran drop-in 'Humanimation' workshops at End of the Road festival, helping participants to create super short storyboards and animations of themselves in action, using props and a range of makeshift backdrops - and their vivid imaginations of course! 

This is a PDF of some of my favourite photographs of past workshops (click the picture above to see it). I love these photos partly because they remind me of interesting and eye-opening workshops with all kinds of different people, and also because most of the photos were taken on my old Pentax camera (which has now gone to the great camera graveyard in the sky).
