The studio will host a series of workshops on Saturday, February 15, where ticket holders can craft one of their favourite Aardman characters and watch a few of their favourite films.

There will be three, one hour workshops throughout the afternoon where young visitors can create their own clay models of Shaun the Sheep, Gromit or Morph to take home.

Led by one of the studio’s expert model makers, there'll also be an opportunity to ask questions about the tricks of the trade from an Aardman professional.
