We will begin by creating a shadow puppet. Participants will be given a range of templates from which they will create a shadow. They will then begin to flesh out the shadow through answering a series of questions until a character emerges. By the end of the workshop, participants will have made a shadow puppet, and taken part in creative writing exercises to create a character based on the puppet.
This is an adult only workshop. All materials are supplied. Suitable for all abilities.
