Join an intensive one day hands-on art workshop, where children are given the opportunity to create sculptures on a carnival theme, and have their creative abilities stretched.
The workshops, funded by the government and run by Trilby and Judy, are designed to stretch and challenge children in ways that might not be available in their own schools.
Working on a carnival theme, Trilby starts the day with some historical background and visual references, and soon the half-human half-bird-like creations start to take shape. The children investigate structure, create fantastic shapes, get their hands dirty with glue and have fun with decorations.
At the end of the day the mixed ability class has achieved a remarkable set of results that may have seemed impossible when the day started.
