What happens in the show?
This is an animation workshop, not really a show. The man showed us how to make models with modelling clay. We made models of anything you can think of. I made a cactus, a girl with a bag, and a cat. My mummy made a model of herself which was very elegant! The man then put all our models into a picture frame which will be hung outside the tent. He took photos of all of our models and made it into a film.
Describe the show in five words
Fun, funny, easy to do, interesting, excellent
What did you like most about the show?
It is really good if you want to learn some craft and animation. I liked making the models and looking at the picture frame when it was done.
What didn’t you like about the show?
I wanted more time to do more models.
What did your grown-up think of the show?
She said, "It was informal, nicely presented by one of the Aardman team, who is a brilliant model maker. Age recommendation for 7+ is right as any younger would have struggled with the model making. It was good to fully participate in a show, and the adults in the room got to make models too which was really fun and got some unexpectedly good results. It was a nice change to be doing something with your kids for an hour rather than watching a show.
Would you tell your friends to come and see the show?
Yes, definitely, for other children who are 7+.
