The Bold and the Boulder

It was fun to see our imagination actually come to life!” – St John and St James’ Student

We worked with a group of year six students to create an original stop-motion animation. The participants, from St John and St James Primary School in Hackney, London, were asked to create a story about cooperation and teamwork, drawing inspiration from the Russian fable ‘The Gigantic Turnip’. We delivered a series of workshops led by a volunteer team of creative specialists in which children learned a number of skills: creative writing, art, drama and animation, all of which were put into practice to create the vibrant and playful The Bold and the Boulder.
