PICTURES: Honiton gets animated

Animation workshop at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery attracts more than 100 visitors.

Young animators from across East Devon brought their creative sides to life and had a toontastic half-term in Honiton.

Families turned out in force for the Thelma Hulbert Gallery’s Flip It workshop, where children were given the chance to create their own flipbook animations, which were then filmed and made it to cartoons.

The event attracted visitors of all ages from toddlers to teenagers.

Parents even got stuck into make their own creations.

Angela Blackwell, the gallery’s curator, said: “The event went amazingly well. We had over 100 people in are gallery, which was non-stop.

“People really enjoyed doing something a bit different and it was a chance for them to be creative and use their imaginations.”
