LEGO Tales: Story and Animation Workshops

08 December 2021
Take the ultimate stop-motion animation challenge and produce your own LEGO® story.

Love using LEGO® to create your own stories? What about using LEGO® to storyboard and create your own stop-motion video? Take the ultimate stop-motion animation challenge and produce your own LEGO® story inspired by our brand-new exhibition Brickwrecks: Sunken Ships in LEGO® Bricks at WA Maritime Museum.

Your full-day workshop will include:

+ Meeting award-winning author Cristy Burne, and learn some of her favourite story-writing tricks.

+ Enjoy a VIP tour of the Brickwrecks exhibition, where you will see extraordinary LEGO® models up close and discover real and replica objects connected to each shipwreck discovery. Be inspired by the fun details and visual storytelling Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught has used to capture our shipwreck imagination.

+ Take a snapshot walk through the Maritime Museum, where you will write story ideas in a noisy spice market, on a boat and beyond

+ After lunch, join local enthusiast John Geijsman from the City of Fremantle Library, as he helps you flex your storytelling muscles using visual techniques and storyboarding.

Learn how to combine themes of history, science, and imagination to create, structure and film your own stop-motion story.

Note: All participants should arrive with shoes suitable for walking, a drink bottle and packed morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Please also Bring Your Own device for creating the stop-motion video.

This is an exciting and intensive program specifically designed for small groups of children who love to write, learn new things and are happy to spend half a day engaged in immersive Museum experiences, then half a day creating their own stop motion video.

It is ideal for two siblings or friends in the same age bracket.

The presenters are funny, warm, engaging, and will do their utmost to ensure participants safety and comfort at all times. This is a drop-off holiday program and children will be strictly supervised at all times.
