Vision Fountain work with educators across all sectors and ages groups from children to seniors.
We work with photographic workshops, animation workshops and photogarmmetry (3-d photography) workshops in schools, museums, community and youth groups.
Archives Animation & 3-d
Our work with Arts Arts Council Wales, through their Lead Creative schools campaign, in the Rhondda valley has delivered mixed media and animation projects, through workshop based creative learning, with Vision Fountain as the project lead. The projects have been screened in the historical Parc and Dare Theatre.
Vision Fountain work with archives, sometimes animating them to bring them to life.
We also work with animations, bringing images we have created in workshops, to life.
We are also able to scan objects in 3-d and create 3-d renders of museum items.
Where-ever possible we aim to share the creative techniques used in a projects’ creation with the communities in which we work.
Workshops have involved studio portraiture, time-lapse photography, archive preservation, drawing & animation and 3-d scanning of museum objects.
We have held workshops at Cyfarthfa Castle Museum & Arts Gallery, The British Motor Museum, The Factory Youth Centre (Birmingham), The 3GS Youth Centre (Merthyr), The Winding House Museum and over a dozen primary schools and high schools.
“Motor Mouths” Family Photography & Animation Workshop (British Motor Museum / Arts Council England)
“The ‘Motor Mouths’ project was a sheer delight to see unfold. The family workshop produced a delightful animation and poster which we were able to pass onto the participating visitors.”

Merthyr’s Black Gold ( Heritage Lottery Fund / Ffos-y-Fran Community Development Fund)
“Merthyr’s Black Gold provided the Museum Service with opportunities to engage with participants onsite at Cyfarthfa Castle and an additional opportunity to take the museum collection and resources to schools and community venues. Introducing participants to this heritage at the museum in an engaging way helps to promote the museum as a safe learning space.”
