Stop Motion Puppet Making on Thursday 25th July

Ever wanted to make an animation puppet like the professionals? Animation Jam will help you make a human like metal skeleton and then fatten it up and dress it to your own character design. You’ll make a head with moving eyes and fingers that can bend and pick things up. Test them out with short animations in the class and then take your creature home.
