Carnival

The Artstage project at Mascall’s school worked with a number of visual artists, dancers and musicians.  We each worked with groups of children throughout the whole school to create a carnival procession.

My role in this project was to facilitate the making of flag style banners and large costumes

The theme of the carnival was celebrating Art around the world.

The children designed their flags and made them using ripstop nylon, bonding layers of fabrics highlighting using paint, collage and marker pens.  The flags were mounted onto Bamboo structured poles.

The children designed their costumes and made them using cardboard, layering paper mâché for 3D detail, tissue paper for colour and texture  and painted with acrylic paints.
