Giant Puppet Making Workshops
Date: Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th November 2016
Time: 11 am – 3 pm
Join our visiting artist from ‘Raventales’ in the creation of two Giant interactive parade puppets with moving parts. We need you to help us build a 10ft Parade Giant of Dr. Frankenstein’s Monster and transform our Giant Lady into literary icon, Mary Shelley. Materials including willow, masking tape, paper, bamboo, re-purposed materials, fabric, cardboard, bubble wrap, acrylics, felt, PVA glue, fur fabrics and sharpies will be used to create the public spectacle. Makers can enter to take part and walk with the Giant Monster in the Grande Parade on Saturday 19th November. Artists information here http://www.raventales.co.uk/
