To commemorate the scuttling of the German High Seas Fleet in 1919, West Side Cinema and Stromness Museum are running a series of free workshops during Shopping Week with London based animator Lizzy Hobbs.

Animating Scapa 100 will create playful, collaborative, cut-out animation focussing on the more extraordinary parts of the scuttling.
