AN exciting project is being launched to give young people the chance to develop fascinating new creative skills.

John Watson, a visual effects specialist who has worked in countless movies, is offering to share his expertise and knowledge.

The 56-year-old, from Winsford, is keen to introduce youngsters to model making, 3D printing, robotics, VR sculpting, vinyl graphics and many more techniques.

But he needs more people to help him to create a techno cafe.

Winsford Guardian:

Young people will be able to learn how to make incredible models

A meeting is being held at the Chatterbox Cafe at New Images Youth and Community Centre on Nixon Drive today, Tuesday, May 14 at 10am for anyone interested in getting involved.

John said: "I really want this to work but I need other people to help.

"People often complain and say there is nothing for the kids to do. I'm looking for adults with creative skills, a techy or artist to come along.

"We are already acquiring equipment through funding and donations and plan to build a creative hub."

Indoor drone racing, t-shirt printing, network gaming competitions, 3D modelling and vacuum forming are just some of the many activities he hopes to introduce.

"It will be a lot of fun," said John. "I'm looking for people who have enthusiasm. I will teach people how to use the equipment. It is quite simple to use, it will be a learning curve."

Any adults interested in helping to run the project are welcome to come along to the meeting.
