Welcome to Sparks Walthamstow


Sparks Walthamstow welcomes children and teenagers to fun filmmaking classes and holiday camps. 

Since we launched in October half term, we’ve helped young filmmakers to produce their own unique movies. We’re excited to launch weekly classes and welcome more young filmmakers to our fun film sets! Take a look below for details of all our upcoming activities for young filmmakers. 

Sparks Walthamstow

Hi, I’m Louisa from Sparks Walthamstow…

I’ve been a specialist media teacher for over 20 years and I’m a local mum to a young filmmaker. After making the long journey to Sparks in Hampstead every week, I had the idea to introduce Sparks classes to our local community in Walthamstow.

I know from my own experience how rewarding these classes can be. The activities help to grow confidence, creativity and a wealth of different skills in film production and media.

I’m so excited to inspire young filmmakers and help to grow their skills, creativity and confidence. They’ll develop their visual literacy, creative production skills and imaginations. I am really looking forward to providing a dynamic environment for creative filmmakers to collaborate with others, make new friends and have fun!

Louisa Cunningham, Head of Sparks Walthamstow
