Have you ever wondered how animators bring blobs of plasticine to life? Through a fun hands-on workshop at the National Motor Museum, your child can explore the creative world of claymation and from their fingertips, stories will unfold.
For two days only, renowned local animation wizzesGooRoo Animationwill be running claymation workshops at the National Motor Museum inspired by the new exhibition,Bush Mechanics. Children will be able to make their own animation starting with little more than a few balls of plasticine. They will learn how to sculpt their own characters, record and edit their creations, and will take home their very own stop-motion animation. At the end of the session, everyone will enjoy some popcorn while watching their videos and will select their favourite animations from the group.
The new exhibition, Bush Mechanics, at the National Motor Museum is set in Central Australia, where local Aboriginal community members keep their cars running using old spares or whatever can be found in the bush and a whole lot of ingenuity. The fun, interactive exhibition will be open from 12 April to 7 July, before embarking on a national tour.
