Calling all timbre shapers, tinkerers and dreamers! We seek to find a stage on the River Clyde. If you love working with your hands or have an interest in designing for performance, we need your help. For the 2019 Pageant, we are building some large scenic elements out of wood, rope, water, dirt and elbow grease. Come and carve a log, learn how to work power tools, help design sculptures and dream up new ways of working with the landscape. Facilitated by scenographer and puppeteer Ian McFarlane, this workshop seeks to harness the joy of collaboration while offering a space to share skills and learn new crafts. Activities will involve: large and small-scale wood carving, carpentry, creative problem-solving, drawing and facilitated exercises in scenic design.
Workshops take place in New Glasgow, on the Pageant site at Little Victory Microfarms when outdoors, and in the New Glasgow Christian Church when indoors. No experience necessary. Ages 12 and up.
