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.

Bring along some fruit, paper, markers, scissors, and Blu Tack.

You’ll need two charged up, internet-connected devices: one to connect to the Zoom workshop, and one for creating your animation. The devices can be a smartphone, tablet or computer.

Participants will need to download the free animation app Stop Motion Studio in preparation. Brief instructions will be provided beforehand. Parents and guardians are welcome to join children and participate in this workshop.

The workshop on Tuesday October 20 is suitable for children aged 58. The workshop on Tuesday October 27 is suitable for children aged 912.
