Jim Parkyn at Harewood

Following a very successful appearance at last year’s Make It Harewood, we are delighted that Jim Parkyn has ‘virtually’ returned to Harewood!

Jim spent two days with us last summer, running Aardman Model Making workshops for over 150 of our visitors, who learnt how to model Morph, Gromit and Shaun the Sheep across the weekend. This year we have something even better for you, with an extra special model making workshop where you can make your very own Humboldt penguin, all from the comfort of your own home.

You can watch back all the activity here:
