Building Shadow Puppets is such a great way for families to have fun together. Very simply and in a minimal amount of time beautiful results can be achieved that enthral children and adults alike. In this short video you can see some of the results that were produced yesterday in under 2 hours. Laughing Skulls, flying planes, castles on cliffs, rabbits in burrows and dragons ridding rockets all made from card sticks and sticky tapes (including gaffa). When we run workshops like these we bring along all the materials, lights and a shadow screen but we encourage participants to continue the fun at home. A sheet stretched between two chairs or hung over a table with a clip or angle poise lamp is one easy way to get started. Even in these days of high technology its such a magical way to bring stories to life.
