Each session will encourage creative thinking and on play structures co-designed and built with you. This will be the woodland hideaway all children (and parents) dream about.

Is your child a budding film-maker, animator, graphic designer, or just really excited to have a go at a new skill?

This four day animation camp will include learning all about the principles of animation, stop motion, storyboarding, character and set design, sound recording, and more. Once you have edited your film with sound and music, there will be a screening to parents and carers at the end of the week!
