Clay Character Modeling or Clay animation uses characters that can be remade from scratch. These are shot frame by frame to give the illusion of movement. The models are generally made with a malleable substance like plasticine clay.

A fun Clay Character Modelling Workshop was organized by Rooftop and was hosted by animator specialist Abhilasha Bhartiya. She also owns her very own Animation Studio “Abhitoons Creations” in Jaipur. 

The Clay Character Modelling Workshop Began

We had around thirty participants for the workshop. They all were equally excited to learn something so new and innovative. Most of the participants were accompanied by their little ones who enjoyed making little monsters out of clay. Abhilasha began the workshop by teaching us how to mold the clay into our desired shape – for example, we made a little octopus out of clay in the session. She also taught us a few tips on how to improve the texture of the clay model using a toothpick. She also explained the kind of clay that is safe for children and things to keep in mind while buying such clay. All the participants and their children had a great time making these little ‘clay monsters’.

Towards the End of the Workshop

All the participants were quite creative and learned very fast. Everyone showed their little clay models to Abhilasha at the end of the workshop. All the participants used their creativity to create their own clay models. We at Rooftop, organize several such fun and innovative workshops every day to help people practice some different art forms.
