Participants will make a creatively original bird of their own design from nylon knitting ribbon, pipe cleaners, base tile and feathers. Because the bird is ‘balanced’ when constructed, a ‘bobbing’ motion is made when touched or moved a little.
This workshop is suitable for children that have the manual dexterity to make a pompom, so it enables younger children to participate if they have this capability. Modelled after a realistic bird or a fantasy bird, each participant will be encouraged to use their own imagination to create a unique design. The process of making this bird will give each participant the ability to make their own ‘family’ of Bobbing Birds’ at home.
This workshop is suitable for children 8 years old and over. Parents will be required to sign a medical waiver when they arrive at the workshop.
