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 Day 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
Aardman have been a pleasure to work with through the whole process on every occasion we’ve booked them – no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who might be thinking of a workshop for their events!
End of the Road 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.
We ran a series of model making workshops with Aardman at 4 different cinemas over half term for both families and adults, and our audiences utterly loved them. The workshops were creative, inclusive for all abilities and for young people with additional needs, and everyone was so proud of their finished Shauns and Gromits. Aardman were fantastic at every stage from planning to delivery, so we will definitely try to work with the again.
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.
