Stop Animation: The Labours of Herakles!


$90 per participant

One-day workshop | Ages 8 - 12
Drop & leave holiday program

You might be familiar with the mythological character of Hercules, but that was the name the Romans used for him. In the original Ancient Greek stories, he was called Herakles. 

This one-day workshop starts with a tour of the Museum's latest exhibition Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes where we will learn about the creativity and competitiveness of Ancient Greece. 

We will then return to the Woodside Learning Studios, where we will experiment with the basics of stop-animation, inspired by the dynamic sculptures in the exhibition.  

After a lunch break to refuel, it will be time to dive into your own retelling of the Labours of Herakles. Starting with storyboarding the idea, then using paper figures to filming your very own epic adventure.  

At the end of the session, we will kick back, turn the lights off and watch everyone’s films on the big screen 


If you register for a tour, program or event, general entry is included in your booking.
