Claymation is Calling

celebrity deathmatch

You like to play with epoxy, wire cutters and clay. Or you're a painfully patient type who wants to spend YEARS filming a puppet frame-by-frame for the fame and glory that Will Vinton and Nick Park revel in. Or maybe you just like to try new things and get free food. Regardless the Claymation Workshop will be an awesome afternoon. Brad Patullo worked on MTV's Celebrity Deathmatch and the PJs with Vinton - and he's a really cool guy. WHEN: Saturday August 12, 2006: 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm (yes, it's really 5 hours - but pizza and drinks will keep you going). WHERE? Downtown. Space is limited and you HAVE to register - just call 327-8301 and you're golden - well, unless you call too late and it's filled. Don't snooze.
