We offer a range of entertaining, engaging and educational workshops that give participants the opportunity to learn about the unique skills behind the making of our films and TV shows, have a go at crafting their own creations – and most importantly – have loads of fun while doing it! The sessions are ideal for schools, museums and festivals, and suitable for people of all ages.

At our Model Making Workshops, participants learn to sculpt our classic characters from clay, while our Storyboarding Workshops teach participants how to bring their ideas to life by creating their own storyboard. We also run adult-focused team building Away Days workshops for corporate clients.

Alternatively, if you’d like to attend an existing public workshop, check out the Workshops Calendar to see our upcoming listings.

BBC See Hear Festival

It has been an honour and a pleasure to have Aardman involved in the festival this year. The model making workshops added another dimension to our off stage entertainment programme and have proved to be a hugely popular and unique experience for adults and children alike.

End of the Road Festival

We have programmed Aardman’s Model Making workshops into our annual children’s literature festival in Shrewsbury for the past three years and each time the sessions have sold out in advance. A loyal and ever-increasing audience aged 8 to 108 love coming to these workshops declaring the sessions to be hugely enjoyable, entertaining and interesting for everyone.

The workshops were fantastic, really engaging and fun. Everyone really enjoyed making their models and we would recommend the workshops for other festivals and events.
