In the lovely Octagon space of the puppet theatre in Norwich; using lights, shadows, dens and of course teddies, we created a wonderful world for animals to play. Some of us even became animals!
A lovely way to end the year off with Little Tots at Norwich Puppet Theatre. I created a fancy dress emporium for children and parents to explore. Full of hats, dresses, cloaks, sunglasses and a whole van load of random fancy dress items! There was a photo booth to record the costumes and a party with balloons to finish up with. It was a blast! Looking forward to the next sessions coming up in the new year. Thank you NPT for inviting me back!
Here are a few photos from a workshop session with myself and Manga artist Chie Kutsuwada. The children had great fun dressing up and creating magical characters with intriguing names and super powers. We had the delightful "Tractor GIrl" whose special power was mowing lawns really fast, "Rainbow Girl" who could magically create rainbows and "Invisibella" to name but a few.
It was a real privilege to work along side Chie whose tireless dedication meant every child (all 17 of them) got to take home a beautiful Manga drawing of themselves in character.
This workshop was part of a series at the Sainsbury Centre for the JAPAN: Kingdom of Characters exhibition which runs until the 24th June.
