4 pm             Sold Out: Stop-Motion Animation Workshop

 Note: The workshop is full at this time.  A few spaces may become available at the last minute, so a stand by line will form at the west doors of the building adjacent to the parking lot.  

This 90-minute hands-on workshop will offer a small group of participants the opportunity to learn some of the stop-motion animation techniques used by Aardman Animations when making their Wallace and Gromit films. Recommended for children between the ages of 8 and 13. Admission is $10 per child, limited slots available.  Instructed by Frank Guttler.
