Children’s Workshop “Pelion Greece 2019”
"The creatures of the camp: a puppet and mask workshop for children"
for children 6-12 years old
Facilitator: Anastasia Kordari
Taking inspiration from the natural landscape of the Pelion camp, we are going to create along with the children a playground of expression, exploration and discovery through free and organized activities.
The main subject of the workshop will be puppet and mask making with natural materials. Children are going to create their own puppet creatures and improvise their own stories. At the same time, they are going to be engaged into other visual activities, crafting musical instrument, doing experiments and games.
