This is no “Nightmare before Christmas” – our festive dream of a workshop with Sam Hines provides the most fantastic introduction to stop motion animation but you’re covering all aspects of making the characters for your animation using wool, armatures and creating positionable expressive features (eyes, ears, mouth etc). During the first day you’ll be focusing on the making – wire structures, core wool to create the body and blending textiles to make fur and texture. In the second day we’ll be creating props for your puppet and creating the narrative for your animation and then we’ll be working behind the lens and manipulating your character(s) to create a doozy of a short animation for your puppets! Ideal for all levels of ability and experience and suitable for anyone over the age of 14. You’ll love it – book now!

All you need to bring is a smart phone or tablet with a working camera and with the free 'Stop Motion Studio' app already downloaded.
