A bit about John:

John was born old, fat and grumpy and has managed to maintain this persona through hard work and dedication .

John first came into the world of Foaminess whilst making props for his bodyart and SFX work, when ill health forced him to give up this side of his work he found that other artists wanted him to make pieces for them and thus a new venture began, creating everything from headdresses and blanks to full suits of foam armour.

Having been making things for a number of years he was then asked if he would teach others and thus the birth of the 2 day foamy workshops began , and the resulting Foamettes have been released into the wild.

John prides himself on the aftercare of his Foamettes and is always available to them for help and further advice long after the completion of the workshops.

He tries to keep the workshops informative, and fully hands on working with each person to help them get the results they want and at the same time keeping it fun
