Thursday Bzzz… Blackburn hosted a portrait workshop with artist Richard Cross. He is well know to the local art scene and recently exhibited at the BP portrait award. The workshop was very much in demand and Richard delivered a great demo to a full house. Mia was a fabulous model. A grand selection of portaits was produced in the space of the three hour workshop. The biscuits were quite good too. A big thank you to everyone involved.
Our resident artist for this week was Robin Denton, a fabulous artist who demonstrated techniques in acrylic creating carton based art.
Our first workshop for this week was local photographer Andy Woodhouse advising people on new ways of finding exciting images. This workshop was very well attended and involved a walk round Burnley to look at the wonderful architecture which can be found just by “Looking up”
Our second workshop was a fantastic opportunity to make individual pieces of jewellery from glass, this was run by Karen from Red Current glass. Some magnificent unique pieces were created and the Karen ran it wonderfully.
The Friday of this week saw our second photography workshop ran by Donna Craddock. This was a lesson in how to take pictures in natural light and learn some of the tricks of the trade on how to create beautiful photographs without the use of flash.
Kick Ass Cartooning on a Saturday – what else could you wish for?! A very well attended class ran by the fabulous Robin. The attendees found this workshop both fun and educational and a great time was had by all.

We all had a great day in Accrington market hall, premiering ‘Animating Accy’, distributing the new map and showing the public the crochet sculptures. Lots of the people who have been involved in the projects came along, with many of the films ‘voices’ turning up to see what creatures Huckleberry Films had turned them into!
The film is now online, and can be seen at:
