Shadowplay Punch & Judy Making Workshop
by Farah Ishaq and Katja Rosenberg
There will be a screen, there will be a light source, there will be cardboard, coloured acetate, sellotape, sticks, scissors and there will be us, creating characters and storylines and trying them out. Punch & Judy have decided to become a bit nicer to each other and they have already been joined by some new characters: The greedy chihuahua, the little birdie, the fat cat, the princess, the dragon and the weird orange guinea pig. Who will you bring to the table? Donate your character to the fun or take them home to develop your stories further. Very good fun for all ages.

Fun and resourceful 5 year old Viv and her adult assistants have prepared a children's party with verything a heart desires from Pass the Parcel to Pin the Tail to the Donkey. 5-10 year olds welcome (please accompany). Bring a wrapped present 'Secret Santa style' if you like!
As the adult assistant for the above, I have handprinted up backdrops and banners for the party with a variety of different sized linocuts and other collages.
