About Sparks Tunbridge Wells
Sparks is launching in Tunbridge Wells!
We welcome young film makers to our fun film classes and school holiday camps. Our main aim is to encourage and inspire creativity and confidence in children and teenagers, ages 5-18.
We meet every Saturday at St Gregory’s Sports Centre, where each term, young film makers meet in our fun-filled film studios to develop their skills, expand their imaginations and produce action-packed movie productions. In the school holidays, our half term camps offer children and teenagers the chance to unlock their creativity and discover the joy of movie making.
Our film classes are small (max. 12 children per studio) for all our workshops, with high staff ratios to provide a high quality learning experience for all taking part. All Sparks instructors are trained and DBS-checked.
“Creativity has been a life-long mission for me, and now, as a parent, I see just how valuable it is for children to develop their creative skills from an early age. With the nature of the creative industries changing, it’s so important for children to have their own stake in the future media world.
I started out my early career in artistic hairdressing, working behind the scenes on film sets, stage, and catwalks. Growing up in Stratford-upon-Avon, surrounded by the Royal Shakespeare Company and as a great niece of Eric Coates, I developed a huge interest in the arts and was soon working with organisations to provide period styling and costumes for short film.
With an increasing curiosity in capturing film and photography, my career slowly developed to place me squarely behind the camera with the Orchestra of the Swan and capturing great orchestral performances from the likes of Julian Lloyd Webber and Tasmin Little at some spectacular venues and festivals.
Over the years I have gained an extensive background in marketing and advertising; screen writing, organising, and editing a host of advertisements for TV, cinema, and social media. I am a firm believer in knowledge sharing and believe children should have the opportunity to develop creatively in an inspired and happy environment. With a background in supporting children’s education and a talented team alongside me; I am happy to offer structured, creative, and fun workshops for children in and surrounding Tunbridge Wells.”
