Bus Fare a Problem?

We don’t want travel expenses to be an obstacle to anyone attending! Escape2Make will cover your bus fare up to £3.50 per day for any workshops you attend. Just show your bus ticket to the session facilitator at the end of your workshop to claim back your bus fare!

Tell me more...

You will be planning, directing and possibly starring in a series of animations that take place outdoors, using pieces of art constructed out of natural materials and yourselves as animated characters, to show off the cool things you can do with what you find in nature!

You’re in complete control of the animation. Want to make something funny? Something sad? Something with a powerful message? Have your say and earn yourself a filmmaking credit! The animation will play on a loop all day at our Green Festival!

Anything Else?

Please bring a packed lunch with you! Light snacks will be provided. Pizza will be provided at the final session! 

Wear comfortable clothing you can move around in! 

Some sessions will take place outdoors. Please ensure you check weather reports beforehand and bring appropriate clothing/protection (e.g- sensible footwear, waterproof jacket, suncream, etc) 

Please note that not all workshops take place in the same location 

By signing up you are agreeing to attend ALL sessions. 

Sessions will be led by professional Land Artist and drone pilot, Richard Shilling.
