During this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Build detailed and professional wire armature.
  • Learn how to sculpt and create removable/replacement hands and head.
  • Design and create a stop-motion puppet from foam and liquid latex.
  • Design and learn how to paint onto latex and colour your puppet.
  • Learn how to create in built rigs for your puppet which will enable them to run and jump.
  • Learn how to animate your puppet.
  • Learn how to treat and create animatable clothing for your puppet.

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.

You will leave with a complete professional puppet as well as the skills to create more puppets for future animations.

I am not an animator, so I did the workshop just for fun. All was perfect, perhaps the only comment not that positive is the change of venue at the last minute, but all was ok after all and I personally was not affected. Jenny was very opened to any questions and made the workshop very lively. 6 hrs went quite quickly both days. I certainly recommend the workshop.

This was a brilliant weekend! Jennifer was so lovely and very informative, she did a brilliant job in educating novice model makers and graduate animators with knowledge in model making, creating a perfect workshop for all! I loved comparing my prior skills with the new ones I had learnt.

Two days of absolute happiness. Jennifer was a fantastic teacher who as well as sharing tons of gems about the animation industry, was a great DJ (movie soundtracks all weekend). I've come away with a gorgeous puppet who I've been able to use for some very rudimentary stop motions. I was looking at trying to do this just on the internet but so glad I went on this course, as there's nothing like learning from a real-life expert.

The class was very enjoyable and well worth the money. Learned everything i need to get started on my own animation. The tutor wasn’t hesitant to answer any questions and was lovely.

Highly recommended, whether you are a master sculptor or just want to spend two days doing something completely different, Jennifer was an amazing teacher and I had such a great time

Great hands-on workshop for learning the basics of Foam & Latex Puppet Building! You learn by doing the moment you step through the door. Nonetheless, bring a notepad and pen to note down any handy tricks and tips. Jenny is a true professional and you're in good hands even if you're a complete beginner. Really enjoyed the class and recommend continuing with Jenny's other workshops to build up and consolidate the skills learnt!
