Suitable for 7 – 12-year-olds
(children must be accompanied by their parents/grandparents/carer/adult family member)
10:30 - 14:30

A special London Festival of Architecture Move IT! Spend time as a family learning the fantastically creative process of stop-motion animation and explore this year’s LFA theme of ‘boundaries’. Why not animate a home on the moon, or an underwater theme park? The only limit is your imagination.

This LFA Move IT! will also take place at The Cinema Museum on Sunday 9 June.

Our Move IT! stop-motion animation days have got to be one of the best ways for families to spend a Sunday together – where your imaginations can run wild and where pigs really might fly! All materials are supplied, but bring a packed lunch (or food can be purchased on site) and a memory device to save your film on to. Movies are also uploaded to our YouTube channel. Look for the Move IT! playlist.

Tickets £22 for parent and one child. Siblings and additional parent/grandparent/carer £10 each.

Films created at workshops are posted to our YouTube channel once they are fully edited. We do our best to finish them on the day, but sometimes this is not possible. On rare occasions it may take up to a couple of weeks for films to be posted. Check out our YouTube channel for previous workshop films.

Workshops depend on a minimum number of tickets being sold to enable them to take place. Activities may be cancelled three days beforehand if there are not enough bookings; we apologise for any inconvenience if this is the case.
