Get animated this half-term at museum

Helston’s Museum of Cornish Life is inviting children and families to a festival of animation this week for their latest instalment – Animate Helston.

The programme of screenings and workshops will explore animation from its origins through to modern day.

The free workshops take place from 10am to 12.30pm and screenings are shown all day.

On Wednesday there will be an opportunity to clay model your own Morph – the popular children’s character.

On Thursday visitors will make and perform with shadow puppets, and on Friday there will be a chance to make paper puppets and scenes for animation.

Animate Helston runs daily at the Museum until Saturday.
