Hi I am looking for a good stop motion Master Class or workshop to attend around the end of this year or into next year. Preferably not longer than a month-ish.  I have an MFA in Animation and I've attended Puppets in Prague so I'm not looking for something really basic, more something to get my creative juices going and inspire me to step it up a notch.  I know last year Suzie Templeton did a workshop but it doesn't look like she's got another one in the works just yet.  Does anyone have any ideas or information they have that I'm not finding on Google or Bing?  Thanks!

Looks like nobody knows of anything going on right now.
You could check out Barry Purves' website - he does master classes from time to time. Sorry I don't have the link, I'm not near my computer.

OK, I tried to post last night but internet crashed, lol.

Here is Barry's web site;  http://barrypurves.com/

Here is one of the hits I got while doing a search for Stop motion master class 2013 ;  http://www.vanarts.com/event/story-animation-masterclass-2013-tour

Hope it helps.

The Vanarts classes were done by Pixar people, so it wasn't really stop motion.  Things like story, timing, and acting apply to all forms, but I think they were applying them more to cgi and 2d animation.  Ken Priebe from Vanarts (author of Art of Stop Motion and Advanced Art of SM)  was organising it and managing the tour but was not teaching it.
