Just under a year ago a very cool place called The Craft Parlour send us an invitation to run a workshop in their space. My first reaction was "how do I run a workshop for film, which is very digital in a space titled craft, defined by working with your hands?". Other workshops they run include macrame and ceramics and different styles of painting...I had no idea how the film making process could fit into this world. But I was super keen! I've always had a passion for working with my hands, so I set my brain to figuring out a way to craft a film without a full edit suite set up.
The results knocked my socks off! I invited the workshop attendees to bring a bag full of props relating to their business and boy, did they deliver! Every person had armfuls of products, tools and raw materials to play with. Such a variety of businesses and biz ideas represented and each person so ready to learn. My favourite part is that every single person left with a tiny piece of film ready to share and pocketfuls of inspiration for many more!
We have run the workshop at the Craft Parlour in the Gold Coast 3 times now, each time more wonderful than the last...and now we are ready to bring this workshop back home to Sydney!
A one-hour-of-power version of the workshop is happening next week in Surry Hills, limited tickets are still available!: HERE
