Workshops run with Karin
Andrews Jashapara as shadow theatre is one of her areas of expertise. Part of
the Conference of the Birds
arts project in the London Borough of Sutton, with year 5 Stanley Park Junior
Karin and I developed
use of recycled materials for the project, including sweet wrappers for colour.
We worked with 60 of year 5, to help them create a shadow puppet each. Children
collected translucent Christmas sweet wrappers to use!
show and project were funded by Arts Council of England.
Work in Progress during the workshops at Stanley Park
It has been great bringing
the birds to life, amazing learning how to do something new like this.
it really fun as we got to cut out our puppet shapes and pin them together.
I was one
of the very lucky people who actually saw the show and it was wonderful!
