The latest animation project, "The Owl and The Field Mouse", promotes the benefits and purpose of meditation.

The Owl and the Field Mouse

The project is sponsored by the Big Lottery Fund and the artwork is being provided by 4YP and the PASTEL group at the Fromus Centre in Saxmundham. We will also be including a meditation class during the animation workshops.

The following workshops are examples available for schools, community groups and children's centres. The object of these workshops in the past have been not only to introduce primary school children to a new artform but also to bring community groups together.
