Courtyard Gallery, The Core Theatre, Homer Road, Touchwood, Solihull, UK, B91 3RG

Aardman Animations are giving you the chance to learn how to make your own Gromit or Shaun the Sheep character at these fun, hands-on clay modelling workshops. Led by one of their expert model-makers you'll also get the opportunity to ask qustions about the tricks of the trade from the Aardman studio.

Taking place in the Courtyard gallery at The Core, Solihull, these three sessions are aimed at ages 6-99 years. The tables will be set up for just 40 participants, all of whom should have a ticket. If you wish to model-make with your child please buy a ticket.

This is a brilliant opportunity to do something together... however If you wish to attend the Courtyard Gallery simply to ensure your child is happy then some seating may be available at the back of the gallery or you can wait in the nearby CafeBar, but parents without tickets are unable to sit at the model-making tables.

EARLY BIRD TICKETS: There are three sessions; 1pm, 2.30pm and 4pm with 40 places available for each, however only 20 places are available now, the remaining places will go on sale when the whole BookFest season is launched later in the year. These sessions are expected to be hugely popular.

Solihull BookFest is part of the Bournvile BookFest family, and returns to the Core in 2020 for anothr magical day of stories, author events and creative fun... look out for music and poetry too! The festivals are run by Busy Parents Network in partnership with The Core Theatre and Core Library.

Workshops are a wonderful way of spending time being creative together - but we do ask that adults buy tickets if they intend to take part, use materials and sit with their children. One ticket per participant please! Workshops classrooms are not suitable for children under 5.
