This is a 5-day workshop where you will learn how to design and build a stop-motion puppet made from silicone and professional stop-motion armature.

This workshop requires you to book at least two weeks in advance as there is some pre-preparation involved which entails having materials sent out to you so that you can start your sculpt as well as one to one skype tutorials to get you started. This is to ensure that you create a puppet that you love in good time without there being any…

I have done multiple workshops with Jenny. I could not recommend enough! I was recommended myself by a friend on my course. I study animation and have done the 2 day puppet fabrication workshop. I have since done 2 model making workshops. I made a sofa and a double bed, the best thing was that I had time to also make a couple of vases for plants and some lamps. I also have done the 5 day silicone workshop and now have a full silicone character that I will be using in my masters. The courses are very helpful, with all materials included. Any questions are answered so I took a notebook to jot down tips and tricks etc. Also it’s a really nice environment to work in. In my experience all other people on the course are there to learn, will laugh along, chat about anything and I have made friends through doing courses too ! Meeting people from different backgrounds and industries. I would love to do more because they are so fun! 100% satisfied with the service and friendliness, worth every penny ❤️ Just for the silicone workshop: it’s a very well thought out week. Jenny produced a schedule and we worked according to the plan. I did get set homework such as: find a pattern for the clothing but it was so I had more time at the studio to do the big bits such as moulding shoes and casting silicone. I’m a beginner and still managed to come out with a character so it’s accessible for anyone!

Absolute gem of a workshop! Learned a lot in such an intense week of the silicon puppet building workshop. Jenny is a great teacher, super accessible and does go the extra mile all the way. From the great techniques taught to the awesome little tips and the incredible high quality materials all included it's definitely worth every penny. 10/10 do recommend
