Experience Days

Animate & Create – Animation Experience Day Workshops

What do we offer?
Animation Experience Days provide a chance for individuals and groups to re-discover the joys of plasticine. Using our professional resources and expertise, participants will be taken through the process of creating their own plasticine characters. They’ll then work in groups to bring their characters to life through stop-motion animation. Producing an animation allows participants to become an animation film crew for the day – creating their own films for the big screen.

Why choose animation?
Our Experience Days are hands-on and fun; whether you are an animation enthusiast or just looking for a good day out and a chance to try something new. It could even spark a hidden talent and you might be the next Nick Park!

You’re in very safe hands with our team of fully trained animators who’ll be assisting and advising you at every stage of the process – fully equipped with the latest professional tools and software.

Can Animation be for Everyone?
Animation is suitable for people of all ages and abilities can be facilitated at a variety of venues. Sessions take place indoors so aren’t dependent on weather and fitness isn’t an issue.

Experience Days are suitable for anyone from 12+ years. Participants do not need to bring any equipment but we do advise you wear comfy clothing that’s ok to get a bit dirty. All our animators hold fully enhanced CRB checks.

What will you get out of it?
If you love animations like Wallace and Gromit and Morph and have ever wondered how it’s done, then this is your chance to find out first hand by having a go yourself!

After the session has ended, models can be taken home and if you bring a USB memory stick or recordable compact disc, you can also take a copy of your animation to show friends and family.
