Looking for a rainy day activity? This Thursday 12th and Friday 13th of January, Emily Mowbray-Marks is offering a Shadow Puppetry ‘explore-shop’ for kids aged 7-12 years.
Be prepared to draw, trace and cut, play some drama games, explore light and shadow and tell underwater stories. Students will make their own shadow puppet, and then operate it in a showing for family on the final day.

She now returns to her home soil to offer explore-shops and events to people of all ages through www.wildandgrace.wordpress.com.
