TheSprout.co.uk recently went down and met some of the people involved in Barnardo's Transitions Service, which works with young people aged 16+ in Cardiff. We delivered a two-part workshop - chosen by the young people in the group - on animation. We used the ever-fun, ever-versatile Claymation, and made two videos!

This video is about a carrot who is (feeling) blue. He is so blue that he cannot get out of bed. His rescuer is the aptly named 'Awesome Sprout Of Confidence', and our blue carrot friend receives some rather magical support. After a short trip, where Mr Sprout shows Mr Carrot many beauties around the world, Mr Carrot regains his confidence and luminosity, donning an infamous mankini for the world to see. A classic story, using clay and vegetable characters, about finding oneself.

The other movie created by the group was a rather unique take on Kanye West at the The Grammys 2015. It involves a clay loo and can be found here.

If you would like us to come into your group to do a workshop (many options available), please do drop us an email at sam or tom@thesprout.co.ukChapter also hosts workshops throughout the year.

Check out some of the other claymations on the site.
