Create Your Own Mini Utopia with Jennifer Cunningham - Babóro Workshop
Jennifer Cunningham | Ireland | Workshops For Children
Are your children glued to some sort of electronic box? Want to ignite their imaginations and help them create their own fun? Give them another kind of box - an empty shoebox! Artist Jennifer Cunningham will guide them in the process.
A shoebox adventure is multi-dimensional, whether you make a mini theatre, zoo or a fish tank. Children create characters and a backstory, imagining a shoebox home where they can enter into their imaginary world again and again for hours of fun, creative play.
Please bring a shoe box, figures and props from home to populate your new world. Dress for mess!
