LEGO Stop Motion Animation Workshops

Our two hour LEGO Stop Motion Animation workshops are aimed at children aged 8+. This holiday workshop takes place at our Play Centre in Wokingham during half terms and school holidays. The two hour session provides plenty of creative fun for our aspiring directors as they get hands on with our movie kits to create their very own LEGO movie. There will be double trouble as we pair the children up to take on the movie making challenges we set them.

We will give a detailed overview of how to make the best LEGO stop motion movie using our iPad minis. We will also be sharing some of our favourite trade secrets to create a movie worthy of the big screen.

At the end of the workshop we will upload the finished LEGO Stop Motion Animation movies to our YouTube Channel so they can be shared at home.

FAQ: LEGO Stop Motion Animation Workshops

Unfortunately our LEGO Movie Making Stop Motion Animation workshops have a minimum age of 8 years old. We have tried and tested the format with different age ranges but due to the format of the workshop we feel that for the best experience children should be aged 8 +.

If you have a child younger than 8 who is desperate to make their own LEGO movie why not try it out at home? There are plenty of stop motion animation apps available, most of them for free, and all you need is a minifigure or two and plenty of imagination.

No. Parents have the choice as to whether they wish to drop and go or stay. All we ask is that each child is signed in on arrival and an emergency contact number is given prior to leaving. If parents decide to stay and have younger siblings with them please note that they are your responsibility and will not be able to join in with the activities unless a ticket has been purchased.
Unfortunately we are unable to allow the children to take home their LEGO creations.For the Movie Making workshop the children’s movies will be uploaded to our youtube channel –
