Visitors to the Eden Project this half term holiday have a ‘ewenique’ opportunity to try out model-making with world-renowned experts. Aardman, the Oscar-winning studio behind Wallace and Gromit among many other famous works, is offering hands-on workshops to anyone who fancies having a go at making models and creating animation films. In addition, a live ‘Animate It!’ daily show will showcase some of the tips and tricks of this type of animation work.
The events are designed to celebrate the new series of Shaun the Sheep, arriving on TV shortly. Children will also have the chance to follow special trails around the site with activity sheets to complete, hidden Shaun the Sheep characters to find, and marvellous masks to make. There is also the opportunity to take part in Shaun the Sheep’s Pom-Pom Parade – a project to raise awareness and support for HRH The Prince of Wales’ Campaign for Wool. The Pom-Pom Parade hopes to set a brand new woolly record for the largest flock of handmade wool pom-pom sheep that the world has ever seen.
Chris Pritchard, Eden Events Programme Manager, said: “Shaun the Sheep is such a well-loved character and we are delighted to be welcoming him and his team back to Eden. We are really excited about all the activities we’ll be providing for February half-term.”
