Lizzy Hobbs is an award-winning indie animator who has been making playful short films for over 17 years. She is a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art and Duncan of Jordanstone AND a recipient of EIFF’s McLaren Award. Therefore, we’re delighted to welcome her back to Scotland to share her stories, which often interpret unusual (yet true) periods of history, through experimental and fascinating techniques derived from her printmaking background.
