Animation workshop proves popular

Bosses at Shrewsbury arts venue the Hive, have today reported that stop-frame animation is proving more popular than ever before amongst young people; particularly with a sell-out Easter holiday workshop! Lots of young people are making the most of the Hive's opportunities to get creative and have fun, whilst making new friends and developing artistic skills.

The animation workshop which is taking place on Tuesday April 9, sold out weeks ago and is full to capacity with youngsters who are looking to get to grips with various types of animation. Participants on the day will be given the chance to explore digital and stop-frame techniques with the aim of creating an Easter themed animation in a day. They will also produce their own colourful sets and craft unique plasticine characters.

Habib Malik-Mansell, from the Hive said "We always try to provide engaging and relevant arts activities for young people during the school holidays. Animation is always popular, proving extremely successful time and time again, so we're pleased to have been able to offer it amongst our Easter programme this year. Our eco-fashion workshop also went well with high attendance, demonstrating that creative holiday workshops are certainly still in demand!"

Whilst the Hive's Easter workshops have now finished, people are reminded not to forget the forthcoming puppet show on Tuesday May 28, when the acclaimed Krazy Kat Theatre will perform The Waving Cat of Japan. Tickets for the performance at 2pm are priced at only £6 for adults and £5 for children.
