Join us for these fun, hands-on making sessions. Get creative with clay and discover how to make your own Gromit, Feathers McGraw or Shaun the Sheep character, which you can take home with you.

The workshops will be run by a member of the Aardman team of expert model makers. The fabulous team behind some of Aardman’s best-loved titles including: Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep, Morph and Creature Comforts. They have loads of great anecdotes to share with you about the studio in these entertaining and engaging sessions. It’s also a great opportunity for participants to ask any questions about Aardman and their production processes.

Each workshop is dedicated to one character, so do choose the correct time slot as listed above. Or, if you can’t choose, come to them all and make all three!

(suitable for ages 8 and above parents or carers must remain present)
