Thumbelina Theater - Port Coquitlam - June 24, 2017 (Prices in US dollars)


Thumbelina Theater

Please join me for this one day workshop June 24, 2017 located at Colours Art & Framing in Port Coquitlam, BC

The Workshop

Sure you know that, as Shakespeare said, “All the world’s a stage”, but what if you could control the destinies of the actors with a mere movement of your fingers? What if a theater was something small and the actors more manageable.  If ultimate directorial power is what you seek,  then Thumbelina Theater is right up your alley.   In this workshop, you will create a stage using a hand-held mirror and small found objects.  The tiny performers will be created from clay and modified bits, doodads and thingamabobs.   By the end of class, you will have a miniature theater right in the palm of your hand.

Supply List

What you need:

1.     A hand-held mirror or a couple of small pieces of wood for a stage.– could be fancy or it could be something you pick up at Wal-Mart.  Remember it will be modified so you don’t need to spend a fortune on it. 

2.     A variety of found objects and doodads that the stage and characters will be made of.   Items like watch parts, gears, typewriter parts….just about anything, really.  Look for things that are interesting shapes or designs.

3.     Fabric, cheesecloth and/or burlap to adorn the character

4.     Paint Brushes (a couple small detail brushes, and some cheap brushes (1/2 inch to 1 inch in size)
