About the event

Come along to this hands-on workshop with artist Annie Murdock at MakeTank Exeter, where we will construct a bestiary of fantastical costume elements --- the heads, tails, talons, and teeth of a creature straight from your imagination!

Using up-cycled and recycled materials, each participant will create wearable appendages that they will be invited to present in an informal 'catwalk' for parents and caregivers at pick-up.

This workshop will run from 3pm-6pm at MakeTank with cookies and tea to help keep our energy up! Come prepared to experiment with ideas and materials, and to have some fun trying on your creations at the end of the day.

All materials will be provided. As we will be making elements to wear, shirts and leggings/sweatpants that are OK to get messy would be ideal.

For children ages 8+

Date: Saturday, October 23rd

Time: 3-6pm with an informal performance at 6pm (10-15 minutes)

Location: MakeTank Exeter, 3-5 Paris Street Exeter EX1 2JB

Cost: Tickets £3 per person to help cover the cost of materials. Limited to 12 participants.

Annie Murdock is an artist and arts educator with a MaEd in Creative Arts and a penchant for creating wild and wearable art. One of her favourite children's books is Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
