My Hat of Surprise was back in action yesterday, this time with an assortment of written prompts for delightful BA and MA students in a workshop at Canterbury UCA. After a brief but live drawing demo and a bit of sound effect encouragement they spent the next couple of hours making many inventive and often surprising four frame narratives.
After the workshop I gave a presentation about my work, the importance of curiosity, and of keeping notebooks. One of the students had made a poster for my talk.
While walking back to the station through Canterbury High Street, and admiring the Christmas lights, I was tempted to whoosh down a Helter Skelter, something I haven’t done for many years. If ever. What larks!
