Learn about shadow-puppetry and its history as one of the world's earliest forms of ‘screen-based’ art, with a special look at Chinese shadow puppets to celebrate our China Up Close summer season.
Make your own jointed-paper shadow puppet, build background elements and work in groups to write a scene for your character to perform in. Then bring your character to life on a lightbox while learning traditional silhouette animation techniques.
At the end of the workshop, you can take home your work on a USB, as well as your shadow puppet.
Workshops run from 10am to 4pm.
Tickets must be purchased in advance. In the event of a workshop cancellation, ticket holders are notified and a full refund is provided. For more information please contact email@example.com
