In this two-hour Zoom workshop, animator and illustrator Amber Cooper-Davies will teach you how to create your own jointed paper puppet, and bring it to life using stop motion animation.
You’ll be provided with easy to follow templates and all the materials you’ll need to get started, including a handy instruction booklet so that you can keep animating after the session!
For ages 8-13
Please note children under 10 years old should be supervised.
Tickets: £5 per household
Bursary places available – email Abie Walton on firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 April to apply.
About the Workshop
A materials kit will be sent out to participants by post. In addition to the kit provided, you will also need:
- Two devices (ideally 1 x laptop and 1 x smart phone or tablet)*
- The free Stop Motion Studio app installed on smart phone or tablet (further details to be sent after booking)
- a pair of scissors
- a pencil and any colouring pencils or pens to decorate your puppet
If you have a poseable stand that can hold your device you may also find this useful, but it is not essential.
*If you do not have access to two devices, please get in touch because we have a limited number of devices that we can lend out for this workshop.
Booking closes 5 April to ensure that all materials can be sent out to participants ahead of the workshop
