Please tell us a little about yourself.
I'm in partnership with my wife running a bookshop in her home town, the World Heritage Site of Blaenavon. Having had an active career in the plastics industry, living outside the UK in various continents for 3 decades, we need to remain active in "retirement"!
What's your story about?
The story touches on one of my interests, Welsh Railways, and how I was probably strongly influenced by my Grandmother. The choice of subject was influenced by, the material available, vivid memories, the desire to learn the techniques of digital story telling to help some historical research groups and the good advice of the tutors.
What did you find most rewarding about the workshop?
Seeing the quality of presentations that could be achieved by a group of very diverse inexperienced people in such a short space of time and the knowledge and confidence gained to try the techniques elsewhere.
