We’re excited to be returning to Fabrica in Brighton to run two workshops over the next few weeks:


Doodle on Video

Saturday 16 July, 12 – 3pm

Drop-in. Free entry – donations welcome

Filmspot are back to facilitate two hands-on, creative and collaborative animation workshops that explore the exhibition through drawing, making and film. In this free drop-in workshop, participants of all ages are invited to purposefully doodle directly onto video frames, which will be scanned and compiled into a lively animation. Participants will be able to take a frame home to keep.

All materials provided.


Animated Doodles

Sunday 14 August, 10.30am – 12pm

£5 (guardians free)

Developing the short film created at Doodle on Video on 16 July, this workshop offers participants the chance to learn basic drawn animation techniques to add detailed animated doodles and personalisation to clips of the film footage. Filmspot’s pop-up studio at Fabrica will give a semi-professional experience that includes using animation paper and peg bars, and will respond to themes in the exhibition.

After the workshop, the animations will be scanned and set in sequence, with the final animation released online. Participants will be able to collect their animations after scanning, in the form of flickbooks.

Suitable for beginners aged 10+ (under 16’s must be accompanied by a guardian, who gets in free). Materials and refreshments provided.

We recommend booking in advance for this event as places are limited. Online booking will be available shortly (booking fee applies). Payments can also be made in cash (no additional fee) during gallery opening hours by speaking to a member of the gallery team or at the Fabrica office on Mondays/Tuesdays 10am – 4pm. Unfortunately, at the moment, we are unable to take bookings for paid events over the phone.
