Celebrate the arrival of Dippy the dinosaur in Coventry with this stop-motion animation workshop, led by Coventry studio Let's Animate. Young animators will have the opportunity to bring pre-historic stories to life by making their own plasticine model dinosaurs.

Participants will develop animation techniques and learn new skills along the way, including storytelling, set design, character building, filming and recording voiceovers. The final films will also be uploaded to Let's Animate's social media and YouTube channel, and can be shared with friends and family. Our series of art masterclasses are fantastic for encouraging creative minds and enhancing the skills of young artists.
