Free Summer Holiday Workshops – Now Fully Booked

Library - 702Our free HOTS Summer Workshop Program is open to all children who live or learn in the London Borough of Hounslow

Our Digital Art Workshops

Using digital cameras and Adobe Photoshop we will help the young people who join us to create outstanding pieces of artwork for the Hounslow Community. The children will learn how to cut, crop, layer and add effects to their work. They will learn how to use digital cameras and how compose eye-catching pieces of digital artwork.

The best pieces of work will be printed on 1m x 1m metal panels that will be hung in various locations across the Borough. Examples of the work we helped the children produce in previous digital art projects can be found in Brentford outside Morrisons on Brentford High Street and on the Bolierhouse of the Ivybridge Estate in Isleworth.

Our Smoothie Workshops

For two days we will be concocting the most amazing smoothies Hounslow has every produced! The children will work in teams to design and market their smoothies. They will think about the best fruit to use and what makes their smoothies extra special. Along with eating copious amount of fruit the young people will get the chance to play games, have a tour of Griffin Park Football Club (tbc) and a watch the Olympics live on a big screen.

Date Age Group
Thursday 9th & Friday 10th August 7-11 year olds

Our Animation Workshops

The stop frame animation is a great but simple way for young people to get involved in film making. The animations are collaborative and easy to create, and also a lot of fun! They can take anything from 20 minutes to 2 hours to create, depending on the commitment level of the young people. It also allows children to play with roles such as performer, director, and creator in a playful non-pressure setting.

During our two day workshop the team from Together We Create will be experimenting with lots of different types of animation, experimenting with sound, shapes and lighting.

At the end of the workshop we will invite all the participants to take their animations home and will upload the best animations onto  the TWC Youtube site.

Stand up Featherstone

Barry Ferns (one of the TWC Team) writes about his creative session at Featherstone:

“The project at Featherstone was a creative day where creative people came into the school to talk about their careers and give learning advice. There was a theatre director, a photographer, a tabla player and sometone doing a workshop on career guidance and creative goals.

I did three workshops; one on stand up comedy, one on drama and comedy and a third on script writing. They were all an hour long and gave an insight into the three subjects for the young people. The day was finished off with a Q&A Session.

A really lovely day which was well organised by the team at Featherstone. Look forward to next year!”

On Thursday 1st March Mary Macleod MP visited Isleworth and Syon school to sample some of West London’s finest Smoothie creations.

10 Boys from Year Eight are currently working thought the tasks and challenges that the HOTS project has in store. Today the boys investigated food groups as part of the Dietician section of the HOTS project and  before the Smoothies began flowing from the blender a very vibrant discussion was had about good and bad foods.

Next week the boys will be looking at the work of the trainer and I am told learning all there is to know about BMX Biking !
