An educational event for those passionate about prosthetics, makeup FX, animatronics, masks, monsters, sculpture, mould making, puppets, face painting and body art for film, television, theatre, live events, cosplay, casualty simulation and much more.

When & Where

Saturday 17th November 2018 from 9am – 5pm. It’s located at the Aston Conference Centre in Birmingham city centre, to reflect the fact that our craft is practiced by people right across the UK and not just in London. This venue allows us to make the event as accessible and affordable as possible.

What's on?

The event is a mixture of educational demonstrations, talks and interviews, special features and a chance to shop with some leading materials, make up and equipment suppliers. In the ‘Monster Mash’ Exhibition you’ll find fascinating exhibits and a number of specially commissioned works.

Central to the event is an ethos of knowledge sharing and we aim to provide valuable learning for the next generation of prosthetics artists. If you’re an education provider wishing to attend as a group, please contact for educational group discount information.

The event is about knowledge sharing with the opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s leading practitioners, meet like-minded people and celebrate the art of creative prosthetics. It comprises a full day of educational classes on the Main Stage with questions on a roving mic, demonstrations and high profile industry artists giving advice, great shopping and various special features like our Prize Draws, the biggest winner taking home a £500+ haul!

We have a packed schedule planned again with features like Prosthetics Jam on the Education Stage, Portfolio Surgery, The Monster Mash Exhibition and Tied-in Teaching Packs for tutors bringing groups of 20+ students. The finale of the day will be the last prize draw followed by the Body Art Catwalk, which brings the curtain down in a blaze of colour and music!
