Event Details

A one-day course exploring using hand drawn visuals with individuals and groups


Little_tickDo you want to learn how to create graphics at meetings and workshops?

Little_tickWould your publicity materials, reports and case studies come alive with illustrations?

Little_tickAre you curious about capturing concepts in a visual, creative way?

Little_tickDo you feel overwhelmed by the emphasis on online communication and have a strong desire to ‘get back to basics’ and learn how to communicate using hand-drawn graphics?

You can benefit by attending this fun interactive course. We explore how to create a visual record in a lively accessible way, including: 

  • The ‘building blocks’ of graphics – lettering, people, icons, text containers and more

  • The difference between graphic recording and graphic facilitation (and when to use each)

  • How to structure a visual record

  • How to create your own graphic templates

This course is suitable for anyone who facilitates, trains, coaches or produces documentation.

By the end of the day you will:
  • Feel confident about creating your own graphics
  • Understand how to use graphics in a variety of contexts
  • Have a ton of ideas for your next presentation or training session
  • Be hooked on the joys of working visually!

Recent participants said:
''The day was elegantly designed and facilitated, ensuring we participants literally broke-through self-limiting beliefs (can’t draw, won’t draw!) from very early on. The day continued apace, building knowledge and skills in an incremental way. Challenging and fun all in one go, as well as a real confidence-booster! The venue was spot-on and a smashing group of participants collaborated well together too. It suited my needs perfectly, and I am very pleased with my ‘investment’. I would encourage others who would like to use graphics and cartoons to bring to life the written word (but feel they can’t) to attend, as they CAN!’  

Tony Stevenson, learning and development specialist, Changing Mindz

'I always enjoy exploring different facilitation techniques which can help me respond to and support people appropriately in new and interesting ways.  This course definitely added to my repertoire and it was wonderful to use a different bit of my brain! I have recommended the course to my colleagues and we might be looking for some in-house input one day.’
Martha Lester-Cribb, Evaluation Support Manager | Evaluation Support Scotland

‘I really enjoyed the session: the creative activities, the facilitation style and the innovative and safe environment were just perfect! I also learned a lot of new techniques and loved the group exercises! The right balance between theory and practice!’
Giulia Lucchini, Learning and Development Adviser | City of Edinburgh Council
‘I really enjoyed this training day. I had hoped that it would educate me about how graphics could be used in my work, particularly with reference to illustrating reports and explaining data to mixed audiences and I was not disappointed. I left the course feeling more confident about how I could incorporate drawing and graphics into my work in different ways.'
Helen Rice | Researcher

'Thanks again for undoubtedly the most fun CPD course I have ever attended! I really appreciated: that you got us all involved right from the start by asking us how the workshop should operate; the opportunity to practise new skills as we learned them; and to work together and share so much with fellow coursemates. I will most definitely be ‘borrowing’ facilitation ideas for the future too. The graphics library, skills and confidence developed in just one day will be put to good use in my role as training officer for Scotland’s Urban Past and in my volunteering activities. In fact, I’m on duty this week as run director at Victoria parkrun Glasgow and have made an ‘infodoodle’ to help our volunteer recruitment on Facebook and Twitter. Hopefully the runners and volunteers will understand and like it! All the best and many thanks again for a top day – I have rediscovered my drawing mojo!
