Campsie View school play

I have continued to work with special needs provision school Campsie View. This time the most ambitious project yet. Working with the teachers we put on a full school show. I helped each class to create costumes, props and back drops for each scene. The children made a wide range of things including a crocodile puppet, a landrover, a disco ball and dance floor, a telescope and a roll along dog made from a mini skateboard.

Toonspeak Slime monsters

Toonspeak provides free, high quality drama and theatre activities for young people living in Glasgow.
I worked with some of the young people to help them design their own slime monsters.

Pumpkin Den at Narrowboat Farm

A new addition for the pumpkin patch this year.
The challenge was make this old wooden thing that was lying around into something fun for the patch.

Laird Pheasant McPheasantface @ The National Museum Of Scotland

As part of the project “Cashback to the future” with impact arts I worked with a group of vulnerable young people within the National Museum of Scotland. We were asked to explore and respond to the current exhibition “Wild and majestic”. The exhibition explores Scottish heritage and history.

Working with me the young people designed and created this large scale costume which then visited the exhibition and created quite a stir.
