As my animation needs to be based on an existing narrative and not one made up by me, I decided to research a new topic but still something I’m quite passionate about. A while back when I did the Wildlife Drawing class, in collaboration with London Terrariums, I discovered that they too did a terrarium making workshop where they teach small groups on the history of them as well as their components and how they work as a contained eco-system. A venue that hosted these workshops was a pub, The Culpeper on Commercial Road.
I thought it would make good basis for an animation to illustrate the process of making a terrarium so that it is educational and sheds light on what London Terrariums offer to the public. So my animation would be like an advertisement in some sense.
