This year The Connex programme kicks off early with a series of animation workshops facilitated by film maker Will Nugent. The Council’s Arts Service is working in conjunction with Tipperary Libraries and will host a series of animation workshops at Clonmel Library, aimed at enabling young teens to make short animated films. Will Nugent will introduce a variety of styles and techniques and give hands-on instruction and guidance to enable the youngsters to complete individual and group projects.

The workshops will be held on this Saturday, 15th October, Saturday, 22nd October and Saturday 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th November from 2- 5pm at the library. These films will then be screened as part of The Connex programme at the County Museum.
