SVG animation workshop.

SVG animation is a brilliant way to bring personality and character to an online experience. But in an industry focused on metrics, these whimsical details are often overlooked or undervalued.

This workshop's really hands-on. You’ll have time to tinker around and experiment, you can work on your own graphics or use the pre-prepped ones, and most importantly - no one's left behind. There are notes and code snippets every step of the way.

People have said very nice things 🥺

You covered ALL OF THE COOL THINGS. I'm seriously so excited to make a ton of cool stuff. It was all so helpful and inspiring and imo you can't put a price on inspiration!
I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. It was really well paced, everything explained in detail and the docs are outstanding.
This was, hands down, the best workshop I have ever participated in. Not only was I able to enjoy myself during our lessons (even though I was coding after a full day of coding), I couldn't wait for the next ones to come.
