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.
