Event description
Design your own crankie and tell a story with it.

About this Event

A crankie is an old-fashioned storytelling artform that uses long illustrated scrolls, loaded into a box and hand cranked as a story is narrated. Characters are depicted by shadow puppetry and the revolving scenery is back lit by a simple light source.

There will be five stages to the workshop – story development, theatre building, scenic illustrating, puppet making and a scratch performance. Crankies and shadow puppets can be easy, quick and inexpensive to make. The materials used in this workshop will predominantly be upcycled rubbish – cardboard boxes, used wrapping paper and single use plastics.

Participants are required to bring their own cardboard box of any size.

Grown-ups accompanying children are very welcome.

Ages: 8 to 12

Duration: 2 hours

Part of the 2020 Puppet Animation Festival
