Inspired by exhibition IN-SIDE-OUT-SIDE-IN, this workshop will explore the city’s digestive processes, exploring its portals and creating new worlds and characters to live in them. We will use animation, with its constantly morphing unlimited possibilities of representation, to capture our shifting ideas about how to live in our bodies and the world around us. 

The workshop will include exploring new materials and combining them, creating characters and bringing them to life using stop motion animation.

This workshop is suitable for ages 8+. Intergenerational collaboration is encouraged. 


This event will take place on the ground floor of our building which is wheelchair accessible. There are accessible toilets on the same floor. If you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to improve your visit please email
