Show Your Inner Glow is a series of 6 FREE sessions led by professional artists Lee Shearman and Janey Moffatt for The Craftimation Factory. The sessions will help participants explore the 'light and dark' sides of their inner selves through the creation of a pop-up paper theatre, adorned with UV paint, that represents their own internal world. Once completed, the miniature sets will be brought to life using stop motion animation techniques inside a black lit sensory tent. Final work will be displayed at an event at The Electric Palace, Hastings.

The sessions are available to anyone with a mental health or wellbeing issue; ranging from those who just have difficult days to others who may have a specific diagnosis. As The Craftimation Factory believe that 'we all have mental health' we aim to be as inclusive as possible. There will be mental health peer support specialists available for anyone who feels they would benefit by chatting more in depth.

Janey studied art at West Dean college, specialising in print making and sculpture, and completed a BA Hons in English at Leeds University which led her into a career in film, video and animation production. Lee completed his Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at Hastings College of Arts and Technology in 1997, after which he graduated in 2000 with a First Class Honours BA Fine Art Degree from University of Portsmouth. He has since been a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and workshop leader specialising in design, bookmaking and stop frame animation.

As the sessions are likely to be popular it's important to secure your place by booking in advance – contact Janey on 07535 279444 or at
