Since 2015 workshop sessions have been an integral part of Ivin's practice. He uses a range of unique sessions to engage communities and individuals with projects, whilst enhancing wellbeing. Sessions range from instant photography to creating unique personalised portraits, with emphasis on fun, reflection, stories and creativity. Examples of previous work below.
Ivin has also taught technical photography courses at West Herts College Watford, Ascend and South Hill Park, Bracknell. He is fully DBS checked with prevent and safe guarding training.

Using Polaroids leftover from West Dean I created a 3x1 metre banner in collaboration with riders at Southsea Skatepark for Journeys Festival . I spent a day with riders in summer of 2018 showing them how to use a Polaroid camera, and helping them write messages to welcome local refugees to the area.
The banner’s slogan, “I’m your friend wherever you go.” was taken from one of the rider’s Polaroid cards.
West Dean Art & Craft Festival, 2018
I was the “Emerging Artist of the Apple Store” over the course of the Arts & Craft Festival. 200 people took part creating 128 Polaroid Cards. Each with a unique Polaroid and message of welcome. Some cards had poignant & beautiful notes, others filled with stickers. The Cards will were displayed during @refugeeweekuk at Sanctuary in Chichester. Thank you to my amazing volunteers, Catharine & Brigitte (Brigitte pictured).
