Children's Animation Workshops

You may have heard a rumor that children like watching cartoons…
They have even more fun making them! 😀

Suggested for ages 6 & upwards (ideally split into similar age groups, eg. 6-9, 10-13, etc) & in sessions for around 15 children to give them a better interaction.
Email to discuss your event & needs. Focused on exploration, play & plasticine! 😀

Events can be based on a theme of your choice. Be aware that children’s imagination has a tendency to take any story in all manner of surprising & hilariously unexpected directions!


A room with plenty of chairs & tables & ideally the use of the room’s natural lighting rather than sunlight (which tends to move over time!). There’s nothing like a ball of plasticine to give their character full expression but it is heavy to carry & best delivered to the venue in advance (animators get bad backs as it is!). A TV or monitor available would be fantastic as a way to show examples & screen everyone’s work for a satisfying finish 😎

I can provide 6 laptops, tripods, cameras & all other materials to generate stop motion & encourage innovation!

All animation will be rendered into an mp4 video file, capable of playing on all modern devices or uploading to social media. Attendees can bring a USB memory stick to keep a copy of their animation & I will also send all movies to the organizer via email after the day’s creativity.

I have public liability insurance & it’s also very helpful if the venue has their own. A room full of children have plenty of energy so enthusiastic volunteers are gratefully accepted!

The kids were fantastic talking through how I'd animate them in this pixelation commercial for Child's Farm 😊👼 Huge thanks to director Marco Barcella, #wearethecreative & @beadomv ensuring we kept our talent comfortable & happy! 😁 #Pixelation #StopMotion #TimAllenAnimation
