Workshops at the Fablearn Conference at UCLan

Fun @FabLearnEurope conference workshop, 'From Pen to Pixel to Plastic and Silk.' 

About the FABLEARN conference

From Pen to Pixel to Silk (Workshop D)
Join Bev Bush for this unique opportunity to enjoy some creative ‘play’ with watercolour pens and paper in an abstract and intuitive way. Complete your design through digital fabrication onto printed silk or organza and take home a unique personal piece that depicts your own character and backdrop for a game environment.

Bev has worked with many large publishers, including Disney Interactive, Sony, Jim Henson Interactive, on video-games such as Mickey Mania, Crash Bandicoot and Lego StarWars.
As an Animation Background Artist, she has credits on many published and award-winning titles for children’s TV such as DangerMouse, Duckula, Wind in the Willows, The BFG
and HRH Prince Charles’ film of his book, ‘The Legend of Lochnagar’

A great BIG 'thank you' to Steph McStea for her expertise in friendly plastic creature creation, to Charley Matthews for his trips across campus to collect our guests (who came from all over Europe for today's FabLearn Eu conference) and for his fantastic fish and Pacman creature creations, Chloe-Leigh Stott for all the help with the workshop and Louis Fray. All your support is greatly appreciated and it was lovely working with you today. Also, special thanks to my colleagues Dan Bowen-Fitton and Janet Reid for organising the conference. We had some amazing visitors from all over Europe and overall had a very worthwhile and valuable experience. :)
