Create your own characters into a simple yet effective shadow puppet with Kyoko Imazu 

Kyoko Imazu is an artist based in Melbourne, whose practice encompasses a range of  mediums such as printmaking, papercut, puppetry and installation, bookbinding and ceramics. She learnt to make shadow puppets from a workshop with the master shadow puppeteer Richard Bradshaw in 2016.  

Her work tells the stories of our often-overlooked neighbours like the weeds, bugs and pebbles that fill our everyday lives. She combines her own memories with the stories of these tiny neighbors to try to make sense of the world we live in and imagine the worlds we cannot see with our own eyes. 

Kyoko will lead children through a shadow puppet making process using their own imagination and stories to create their favourite characters. This workshop will culminate in a short performance by the children for their parents behind the screen.

Children to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
