Frame by Frame

Frame by Frame is an opportunity for local film-makers to come and show their films at Paisley Art Centre.  Over the last six months we have shown over 20 films to packed audiences.  Special Guests have included Lochwinnoch film-maker Kevin Cameron and local director Gary Hewitt. Each month a different member of the local art scene hosts the event and the aim is to nurture Renfrewshire’s emergent film scene. 

So if you want to show your film, want to meet other film-makers or just want to see short films Frame by Frame is the place to come to.  Simply bring your film on DVD on the night and we will show it. (Max length 15 min without prior arrangement.) 


This month we are showing locally produced documentary ‘Young Witherspoon’ by Friday Films and Chris Holmes of the upcoming Paisley Film Festival will be launching an exciting opportunity for local film-makers to get their work screened. 

Entry £2 
Venue Paisley Art Centre 
Date: Tuesday Aug 12th 
Time: 7pm til 9.30 pm

Fashion Design

Fashion Design and Animation Workshops for children at Paisley Museum.

It can be difficult to keep the kids entertained during the long summer break, but thankfully Renfrewshire Arts & Museums’ Outreach Team are on hand to offer two boredom-busting workshops in the art of both Fashion Design and Animation at Paisley Museum.

Suitable for young fashionistas with an eye for style (no sewing skills required!), our ‘Passion for Fashion’ workshop will give budding designers the chance to make their own clothing from recycled materials, and emulate the likes of Vivienne Westwood and Versace by putting the famous Paisley Pattern back on the catwalk!

The children’s finished collection will then be showcased at their very own fashion show; complete with runway, music and film on Friday 2 August at 12pm. Designers’ family and friends will also be invited to attend this finale.

The ‘Passion for Fashion’ Workshop will run from Monday 29 July – Friday 2 August, 10am – 3pm (10am – 1.30pm on Friday) at Paisley Museum. Places cost £37.50 (£26.25 conc) each and this includes materials used. Suitable for ages 8 – 16. Participants should bring a packed lunch each day.

Our second summer workshop is ideal for cartoon and film fanatics hoping to make the next Despicable Me, Simpsons or Monsters Inc. Working with our award-winning outreach team, participants will learn to devise a story, create their own characters using Claymation and then animate the whole sequence, even adding voices and sound effects – and all in just 4 days!

The short films will then be screened at an exclusive premiere on Friday 9 August (1pm) to which family and friends are invited to attend. Plus all participants will receive a copy of their very own DVD to take home.

The ‘Let’s get Animated!’ Workshop will run from Tuesday 6 – Friday 9 August, 10am – 3pm (10am – 1.30pm on Friday) at Paisley Museum. Places cost £37.50 (£26.25 conc) each and the workshop is suitable for ages 8 – 16. Participants are asked to bring a packed lunch each day.

Places for both workshops can be booked by calling the Renfrewshire Arts & Museums Box Office on 0300 300 1210.
