A number of our projects have involved working with groups of young people and a small team of professional animation artists. During these sessions, participants work together to tell a maritime story using stop-motion animation techniques and creating their own props and scenery using play-dough and a range of other materials.
 
These projects are a great way for people to learn new skills (animation, art, teamwork, communication etc.) while learning about their maritime heritage and having a lot of fun. You can see some of the fantastic results below. if you would be interested in arranging or participating in such a project, please contact info@hwtma.org.uk in the first instance.
