Partake workshop

7 Nov

I was invited by Partake to do a workshop at Wakefield College on 10th October for the Cathedral launch event. My workshop was a part of an open day for the college’s pupils to try out different act activities, also an initiative to help artists work in schools. Other workshops at the event included origami, animation, architecture with sweets and bracelet making.

Artist Nicolar Bell joined me for the workshop. Together we made templates for finger puppets, plush toys and cardboard robots so that the children had a range of characters to choose between. All of the children were able to take away their own creations when they were finished. Bunnies and octopuses proved to be very popular choices, as did the cardboard robots. It was interesting to bring the workshop to this new environment after a summer of workshops at different festivals. This time around, there was no straw to bring home in the luggage mixed in with the fabric.
