Colourful willow constructions for carnival, performances, Mardi Gras. Simon Honey and Jo Beldham worked with 30 pupils at Stanley Park Junior School to help them create 15 big puppets for the Conference of the Birds arts project in the London Borough of Sutton. The children acted out scripted scenes during a final performance on stage at the Secombe Theatre.

It gave me an experience of a lifetime George C year 5

We were so lucky to have an opportunity like this. I loved it and if I could do it again I definetly would!

There was not a child disengaged from this project – they loved the art work and creating their actual birds. Their excitement and enthusiasm was gratifying and a superb response to the inspirational input of Karin Jashapara, Simon Honey, Karen Barnett and Jo Beldham. The fruits of their labour drew plenty of comment from other children and adults in school. Julie Reed

The puppets are made from willow and layers of tissue paper and have moving heads and wings that flap.

I thought the Conference of the Birds project was an amazing experience and I would love to do it again if I got the chance. George
