About this Event

Exploring different techniques of character animation through Drawn & Stop Motion Animation... final films will be screened!!!

The perfect introduction to character animation for creative children. This workshop is for children aged 7 - 9 years old, there will be a repeat of the workshop in the afternoon for older children aged 10 - 12 years old.

We'll be inventing characters and animating them through different stories, exploring how we can use animation to express the characters different abilities, emotions and quirks.

We'll be exploring character development as well as developing little storylines which demonstrate to the audience who our characters are and what makes them tick!

Over the morning we'll have a go at Stop Motion animation using, Dragonframe, an industry standard software used for films such as Coraline and Shawn the Sheep.

We'll also look into how to animate our characters through traditional drawn animation. Exploring morphing and other traditional drawn (cell) animation techniques. Films of the work created will be shared online soon after the workshop and there will be a screening which will take place (details to be released soon children who attend the workshop can come to the screening for free, but there will be a fee for adults).

Other important things to note:

- All staff and volunteers are fully DBS checked, with a minimum ratio of 1 adult per 5 children.

- This is suitable for all children, if you child has any additional needs please let us know so we can prepare as well as possible.

- The workshop is held in the Ideas Hub zone of the Library, we will be seperate from the rest of the library, parents are more than welcome to stay in the library or Cafe zone, or leave and collect their children at the end of the session.

- The Ideas Hub can be found on the right hand side of the library, half of the cafe will be separated from the public for the workshop to take place within.

- A film of the animation will be published online after the workshop to share with friends and family.
