Stop-Motion Animation, Foam and Latex Puppet Building Course at TBG+S, Dublin

This is a great weekend workshop for anyone wanting to learn how to create a more advanced puppet that can be easily animated as well as learning skills of designing and creating clothes specifically for animation puppets which can be used time and again.

All equipment and materials are included, no need to bring anything.

This workshop is very hands on with each participant benefiting from one to one tuition throughout the weekend and while it is advanced, no prior experience is needed.
