Online Lego Animation Workshops 26 - 28 Oct 2021

From the comfort of your own home this mid-term, learn how to make your own mini Lego movie in this live online workshop!

With plenty of hands-on learning and simple demonstrations, Createschool will take you on a journey from having a cool idea to making it into an awesome spooky movie. You will learn the different elements of stop motion animation as well as how to create a set, storyboard and plan for your movie, which you will then film, edit, and record.

If you would like to take part in this workshop in 'real life', we have a number of in-person sessions - you can find out more here.

About the Artists...

Createschool - where ideas flourish & imagination rules! Createschool delivers workshops in BrickFlicks Stop Motion Animation (with Lego), Songschool, Music Production, Film Making, Podcasting & Digital Animation in primary and secondary schools, arts centres, venues and festivals throughout Ireland.

Their themed workshops are designed to encourage students - young and old - to explore hidden talents and to creatively express themselves using stop motion, movie making, Lego, animation, music or podcasts. They facilitate ideas generation and there is a strong emphasis and focus on collaboration and the participation of all students - and most importantly, enjoyment! They creatively use mobile digital technology (smart phones, iPads etc) in all of their workshops to enable people to use the amazing abilities of technology for their creative applications rather than simply the practical capacities.
