Aardman Away Days


Aardman have crafted a series of away day experiences that offer organisations a creative solution for corporate training. Aardman’s clay building workshops offer a truly unique experience and provide participants with the opportunity to learn from expert model makers how to make world-famous Aardman characters and create a story around them, whilst simultaneously enhancing communication and team work within their organisation. Participants will be encouraged to focus on leadership, communication and team building, as learning theory is creatively woven into a fun day out of the office, playing with modelling clay and creating bespoke animations to show friends, family and colleagues!

These events provide creative and hands-on activities and are a great way for teams and organisations to bond, celebrate and enjoy a day out together. Participants will also get a rare chance to ask questions about the Aardman studios and hear about the animation process involved in the making of their award-winning films. With tailored sessions built to suit participating companies’ cultures and business strategies, the Aardman Away Day promises to be an unforgettable experience.

Prices start from £750 + VAT for a 2 hour session and up to 15 participants, however other packages are available and Aardman are happy to discuss and tailor your event and fee based on your group size and individual requirements and objectives. Have a look at previous team animation attempts here – who knows, you could become the next Nick Park!

You will need to provide the venue, materials and a willing team, they’ll provide the model makers and Aardman inside info! For more information, venue recommendations or to book an Away Day, click here or contact
