The Cardboardia Embassy, a giant cardboard world is coming to THAMESFEST and we need your help to create it.
Join participatory workshops led by celebrated Russian company. Adult and child workshops available.
Adult drop in workshops (Ages 16+)
Wed 13 Sept and/or Thurs 14 Sept, 6pm – 8pm.
Family workshop (Ages 8+):
Thurs 14 Sept, 4pm – 6pm.
Full week participation opportunity (Ages 16+)
Join the Cardboardia team for a full week of workshops where you will help to create the Cardboard installation for the festival. The week will be split into modules where you will learn about set and installation design as well as how to create interactive performances and how to work with the public at events like ThamesFest.
This would be ideal for designers and makers, those interested in gaining new skills in building sculpture as well as those who love to create things with their hands. This would also be great for people interested in participation activities as well as performers.
You will need to attend the workshop on Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th, Thursday 14th and Friday 15th September for a full day (11am – 8pm) or a half day (11am - 4pm or 3pm – 8pm). You will also need to be available on Saturday 16th September for the Thamesfest.
There is a short task to complete in advance and you will be sent this information when you contact Sophie to book your place.
Priority will be given to local Barking and Dagenham residents.
