Our model making sessions are fun and hands-on, where participants get creative with clay and make one of our famous characters to take home with them. They’re run by expert model makers, who have worked on some of our best-loved films, including Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run and Shaun the Sheep. They have lots of great anecdotes and insights into the wonderful world of Aardman to share too! We also offer online versions of our model making workshops via Zoom and MS Teams.

Aardman have been a pleasure to work with through the whole process on every occasion we've booked them - no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who might be thinking of a workshop for their events!
It has been an honour and a pleasure to have Aardman involved in the festival this year. The model making workshops added another dimension to our off-stage entertainment programme and have proved to be a hugely popular and unique experience for adults and children alike
The workshops were fantastic, really engaging and fun. Everyone really enjoyed making their models and we would recommend the workshops for other festivals and events.
Working with Aardman was a fantastic experience at Camp Bestival. We loved the whole process from booking them to the onsite activity which blew the kids and us adults away. We’d love to have them back.
At our animation workshops, participants are guided on how to make their own short stop-frame animated film using our free app, “Aardman Animator”. Our workshop leader covers simple but effective animation techniques that beginners can easily apply to bring their stories to life.
- Our day package includes up to 2 x 1.5 hour animation workshops
