LDC presents 
with Dr Nicola Streeten and April Nash
A Structured Residential Course to Progress your Graphic Novel & Develop your Procreate Skills
Cost: £580 per person 
Requirements for attendance: Ipad + Apple Pencil + Procreate App

A monthly online meet up group for autobiographical comic makers on the third Sunday of every month, 1-5 pm with breaks.

Safe Space for Hard Stories creates a buffer between the creative space of immersion and exploration, and the public realm. It is a participatory space that is held by those that attend with mutual trust and confidentiality. Stories are shared and heard. Together we navigate the various anxieties that arise with this kind of work, offering each other support. In addition to this, the regularity of the meet ups is a great opportunity to sustain a rhythm with your work. However, there is no pressure to produce – life can and does get in the way, and that’s ok!

Sessions consist of:

  • Sharing updates on your projects
  • Peer to peer and/or group mentoring
  • A chaired discussion around a particular topic of anxiety
  • Art activities to support your projects
  • An invitation to set goals
  • Q&A with invited guests who have published autobiographical comic material about a difficult time in their lives.

The course is ongoing and the fee covers blocks of 6 sessions that can be then be renewed. You will need to attend a 30 min 1to1 consultation with Wallis Eates prior to joining, and sign an Agreement Form.

For details email walliseates@gmail.com

As a participant of the first cohort I wholeheartedly recommend this. The time I spent with Wallis and the other artists has been so precious and so valuable. I have made serious progress with my story but most importantly, I remained connected with it in a way that was somehow just right, both practically and emotionally.” E, previous participant.
