Children will learn to make animations
CHILDREN will learn how to make their own animations at a forthcoming workshop at Mermaid Arts Centre.
The animation workshop will take place on Tuesday January 29 at 3.30 p.m. and is suitable for children aged six to eight. It will last for 40 minutes.
The children will learn how to make a thaumatrope - one of the oldest forms of animation. Award-winning animation facilitators Pádraig Fagan and Carol Freeman will deliver the class.
A thaumatrope is a toy that was popular in Victorian times. A disk or card with a picture on each side is attached to two pieces of string. When the strings are twirled quickly between the fingers the two pictures appear to combine in to a single image.
