WHAT HAPPENS IN THE WORKSHOP

With films and TV shows such as Wallace and Gromit and Shaun The Sheep, claymation has become a very popular animation style. In this workshop the group will focus on creating characters and sets using Plasticine or modelling clay, then learn how to move them.

They will learn what makes a character easy to animate, and discover the different kinds of movements that Plasticine naturally suits. In longer workshops the group will look at animating with armatures and how to achieve natural character movement.
