Designing an effective visual show isn’t as easy as it might seem, as anyone who has tried it can tell you. It’s not just about moving people around a field to music – it’s about making the audience (and the judges of course) respond emotionally to what you are doing.

Without effect you are literally just making shapes on a field. So, what is effect, and how do you go about creating it?

This workshop will give you the basics of visual design, from deciding what you are going to portray to getting onto paper and – nowadays – onto your members’ phones. It’s an art not a science so come and pick the brains of two experienced visual writers and learn from one another in this interactive one day workshop.
