One Day Workshop

Young & Animated Taster Day 

Aged between 8-16? Interested in animation? Our October half term Taster Day is perfect for you! Our highly trained Young & Animated tutors will be running a packed day of digital and stop animation for you to try out and see what you like best!

The day will be split into two sessions, which will swap around at lunch to make sure you get the chance to give all types of animation a go! Get messy making your own plasticine character come to life using stop animation techniques. Then move on to our digital workshop to see balls bounce and frogs leap in our computer-based session.

The £30 ticket includes access to both sessions; on the day we will be able to let you know which session you will be doing morning and which in the afternoon. Please do make sure all children bring along a packed lunch for lunchtime!

This taster day is organised by our Young & Animated Saturday Club and Young & Animated Plus tutors who run our regular six week courses, for more information about moving onto these course please do ask our tutors during the taster day.
