WHAT HAPPENS IN THE WORKSHOP

In this workshop the group will create a film using just sand and/or other natural materials. Sand and natural objects are brilliant materials to create expressive painterly animations. These animations can be fantastic if they are created in natural environments such as on the beach, in a community garden or on a school nature reserve.

Sand animations can be extremely beautiful – they are usually created on lightboxes which create luminous silhouetted effects. These workshops usually focus on transformation and movement and are perfect for participants who lack confidence in their arts and crafts skills.
