This October saw the 3rd project we’ve run for the Royal Armouries. It was part of the Big Draw so our brief was to create animation activities that use drawing and making. We spent 5 days making gross puppets, thaumatropes and animations.
The playlists for the project are on our YouTube Channel.
We made a few example stopmotion puppets to help inspire the children to make their own gruesome characters.
Made using armature wire, Milliput, foam, latex, bandages and paint.
Made using armature wire, Newplast clay, Milliput and paint.
Here are a few photos from the project.
