Bitbuzz Computing

We also run computing workshops and one-to-one computing tuition. Our tech expert Alec has a background in user interface design and software development. He trained as a designer and has extensive experience with 2D image editing and creation software, as well as vector graphic design software. He has also worked on the design and code of websites and web apps, as well as making apps for Mac such as the calendar PreMinder. You can see some of his icon and interface designs for web apps here.

Alec can offer an introduction to image editing, using design software or digital artwork creation. He can also show you how to make your own web pages using HTML and CSS, as well as adding more advanced features with JavaScript. There’s also the option to learn about the basics of coding using tools like Scratch or more advanced coding for Mac.


At the moment we offer a small workshop every Wednesday from 11:30am–12:30pm at the Curious Minds Home Ed group near Raynes Park. We bring laptops for the children to use if one is required. We try to help each child develop projects that they are interested in using creative software or code… or both! They can also talk to and learn from each other while getting experience with using computers to create. Alec is on hand to offer advice and help.

We recommend these sessions for children of ages ten and above who are happy to be self-directed. The cost is £10 per child per session. Groups are quite small so places please email us in advance at to check availability. Please click below to see dates for Spring 2023.
