Stop Motion Lego Animation Workshops 26 - 30 Oct 2021

This mid-term, learn how to make your own mini Lego movie in this practical workshop at The Ark!

All you need to bring is your favourite Lego character to cast as the star of your film.

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.

As part of The Ark's COVID-19 safety protocols, this workshop will take place with a limited number of 'pods' which you can book for either one or two children.

If you would prefer to work on your own device, you can bring that with you - just make sure it's fully charged and that you have the free version of the Stop Motion Studio App installed on it. Please note that it needs to be a mobile device like a phone or tablet as laptops will not work.

COVID-19 Measures

We want you to feel comfortable and confident in attending live in-person workshops at The Ark and can reassure you that we have safety measures in place.

The limited number of workshop participants will be sitting in pods that will be spaced a minimum of two metres apart. Enhanced ventilation, cleaning and hygiene measures are in place, with hand sanitising stations and one-way systems.

Face coverings are mandatory for grown-ups and young people aged 13+ at all times while inside The Ark, while children under 13 are encouraged to wear face coverings if they feel comfortable to do so.

You can find out more about The Ark's COVID-19 Safety Measures here. If you have any questions or concerns, please do get in touch with us by email at or by phone on 01 6707788 from Monday-Friday, 10am-5pm.

Refunds & Cancellation Policy: If any events are cancelled by The Ark whether due to COVID-19 or any other reason, then we refund all audiences affected. As part of our COVID-19 protocols, we ask that if you are feeling unwell or displaying symptoms of COVID-19, you follow government guidelines, remain at home and self-isolate. Our box office can arrange a refund of your ticket in these circumstances provided you let us know at least an hour in advance of the workshop.

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.
