Date: 1 December 2018 – July 2019
Included in General Admission and Exhibition only tickets.
Just in time for Christmas The Postal Museum exhibition will feature two much-loved clay characters, Wallace and Gromit (and some other friends). This exhibit takes you behind the scenes at Aardman revealing the creative process of making a special set of Christmas stamps for Royal Mail. From creator Nick Park’s original concept sketches to scenes inside the studio, you will get a unique insight into the magic of Aardman and the craft of stamp design.Book now
On display are original sketches by Nick Park as he experimented with revealing some of Wallace & Gromit’s Christmas traditions.
The exhibit also features colour sketches, as we explore the evolution of the designs from initial concept through to the final issued stamps.
With these photographs, courtesy of Aardman, we can take you behind the camera to show you how they create these intricate scenes.
The stamps showcase these wonderful designs, reduced to stamp-size but still including the detail and humour we expect from these national treasures.
