the garden

The pixie from the animation

A short stop motion animation as a first time experiment and collaboration between felt artist Stéphanie Tenier [of Feltastik] and graphic designer Bert Dufour [Charcoal and Pearl] who both share a passion for creating and a love of animation.

The short movie was created initially for the "West Cork Creates" Exhibition 2016 in Skibbereen, Ireland which had “The Garden” as a theme.

The exhibition was designed to encourage collaboration between artists and crafts people from different disciplines to create something new together, something they otherwise mightn’t consider starting.

In 2016 the movie was selected for the 61st Cork Film Festival and the first Festival Internacional de Animation Ajayu in Peru with selection for the The Fastnet Film Festival in Schull, Ireland the following year.

More animation will be in the works in the future so watch this space!
