Five session course
Advanced Silicone Stop-Motion Animation Puppet Building Workshop
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 time pressure during the week of the workshop and also you will need to start this workshop with an already completed sculpt.
You will learn the following:
How to sculpt textures into your puppet. How to handle professional armature. How to create a two-part silicone mold How to paint with silicone How to punch hair How to back paint into your mold
At the end of this workshop, you will have a complete silicone puppet that you can animate as well as the mold from which you can re-create more at home.
This is an advanced workshop for those looking for more experience in puppet building. Ideal for those who are in University with some prior model-making experience.
It is also ideal for those with an interest in animation and suitable for those who can sculpt.
As you are creating your own puppet, there is no limit as to who can join this workshop.
The cost of materials, as well as the professional armature, is included in the cost of this course.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
