Shadow Stories

Welcome inside the outdoor shadow theatre! Puppets made from foraged materials and recycled card. Great fun with the Home Education group!

I love the simplicity of a tree hung tarp creating a theatre, a muslin canvas for the screen, hand torch for illumination and whatever you can forage for the puppets. We were lucky as the group bought various instruments to create an atmosphere and loads of enthusiasm for their characters and stories.

This session was part of a monthly series of sessions run for a Home Education Group. Earlier in the year we have made charcoal, modelled with clay, told stories, pressed apples and cooked onion squash soup.
