Children's animation storytelling workshop with Isobel Knowles

04 November 2020

Have you ever wondered what the fruit gets up to when you’re not there?

Get your apples, oranges and bananas in order and see what they have to say in this animation workshop! Record dialogue and animate your favourite fruit to tell jokes or ask meaningful questions about the universe.

To animate your fruit you'll need:

  • A few pieces of your favourite fruit
  • Paper
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Blu Tack

You’ll also need a charged up, internet-connected device to create your animation. This can be a smartphone, tablet or computer, and you will need to download the free animation app Stop Motion Studio in preparation. 

This workshop is suitable for children aged 512.
