Sex Education and Illustration

 This month Claire Grey attended the launch of Tameside Schools Sex and Relationships Education programme, as all the materials were lovingly created by our own creative team alongside Tough Cookies Education Ltd.  The project has taken many months to create and we are very proud of it. New material was aimed at pupils in Key Stages 1 To 4 and covers a wide range of subjects including healthy relationships, bullying, contraception, consent, unplanned pregnancy, diversity, consent and fgm.  For full details and credits visit out children's/educational page.

Tall Tales Part 3

Tall Tales part 3 has finally been released.  It is an animated short about why children need to smash empty eggshells. It came out of an old wives' tale told to me as a child. It also came out of some very generous people who backed it on Kickstarter, artists who contributed to the campaign and a very talented team who put it together. Hope you like it.
