Scrap Motion Animation

  Scrap Motion Animation brought a group of young people together to make puppets out of rubbish and old bicycle parts in conjunction with The Labyrinth as part of their Big Bike Party which they hold each year for the much loved Coastal Currents festival in Hastings and St Leonards.  The project was made possible by funding from Unltd.  


The children had the joy of seeing their puppets come to life using stop motion animation software, and had a go at operating marionettes that had been made from junk such as rusty cutlery, broken bicycle pedals and unwanted electricity cable.  


The Craftimation Factory have received further funding from Sussex Community Foundation to hold further sessions at Recovery College, East Sussex in Spring 2015.  Adults will have the opportunity to learn skills in simple carpentry and metalwork in order to make puppets and try their hand at stop motion animation.
