Jim Parkyn from Aardman Animations shows us how to make Shaun the Sheep using clay and toothpicks (which the British call “cocktail sticks”.) This step-by-step live Hangout on Air was part of Maker Camp 2014.
Michelle, or Binka, is the Director of Custom Programs for Maker Media, overseeing publications, outreach, and programming for kids, families, and schools. Before joining Maker Media in 2007, she worked at the Exploratorium, in Mitchel Resnick’s Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab, and as a curriculum designer for various publishers and educational researchers. When she’s not supporting future makers, including her two young sons, Binka does some making of her own, most often as a visual artist.
