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!

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

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.

National Trust

Working with Aardman was a fantastic experience at Camp Bestival. We loved the whole process from booking them to the onsite activity which blew the kids and us adults away. We’d love to have them back.
