About Us

Malvern Armatures designs, manufactures and supplies affordable Stop Motion Animation Armatures designed to enhance the work of the animator working in the Animation Industry, Universities, Colleges or at Home.

In 2012 our objective was to design and manufacture a single human armature for a 1st year student (my son) at Glamorgan University (The University of South Wales). After initial sketches, designs and quite a few mistakes a final design was baselined so that production of our first Stop Motion Armature could begin. We then made a second prototype armature and both were used in the production of 1st year Stop Motion Animation projects and the results can be viewed on the Gallery Page.

We then realised there was a gap in the market for "Affordable Stop Motion Animation Armatures" so Malvern Armatures was formed.

All our armatures are carefully assembled to guarantee smooth and precise movements and if you need to rig your armature in the studio we also supply a variety of rigging solutions.

If you can't find the armature that fits your character we provide a full armature design service manufacturing bespoke customised solutions to meet your specific requirements for those characters with special proportions or anatomy. At Malvern Armatures we would like to help you build your characters, so if you have a design in mind like a long or short legged human or animal character, please send us a full size "Turn Around" drawing and we will endeavour to design and cost an armature to meet your specific requirements.
