The exhibition includes clay figures, sketches, storyboards and snippets from stop-animation film sets such as the Shaun the Sheep the Movie, Chicken Run, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Flushed Away and (of course) Wallace & Gromit.
After being inspired by Aardman's masterpieces, walk into your own mini studio and get to work on your own little claymation story. Included within the exhibition's entry fees is the use of clay and stop-animation software, available for public use at the rear of the gallery. This is a manned area, with ACMI staff on hand to help you. Once you've finished your animated video, email it to yourself and share with your friends & family!
Even if your children are not overly familiar with Aardman's work, you will all leave knowing much more about the studio's achievements and will most certainly be in awe of the ridiculously tiny yet perfect sets!
