'Gods, Myths & Monsters' Shadow Puppet Workshop with Jonathan Hayter
Suitable for age 7 and up
Duration 3 hours
An exciting opportunity to bring your imagination to life in this creative shadow puppet workshop run by experienced professional puppeteer and artist, Jonathan Hayter.
'Gods, Myths &Monsters' promises to be an exciting encounter with the process of shadow puppet making. Jonathan will guide participants through a simple and effective creative process to design, make and perform with your own shadow puppet.
What is your idea of a 'god', or a 'myth', or a 'monster'?
Drawing heavily on the Greek myths, the workshop will start with the story of Theseus and the Minotaur - the half-bull, half-human creature locked in the legendary labyrinth.
You can explore the idea for a character that you think might also inhabit the darkened tunnels of the Labyrinth. Maybe it’s a monster or is it a God? Either way, you can make it here!
At the end of the workshop you can bring your creature to life on the shadow screen with a suitable musical accompaniment.
