charivari school workshop
"It is always a pleasure to see young people working together to achieve a shared goal..they become part of the dream team, forging friendships over bundles of withie and fostering positive attitudes towards themselves and their home town."
Andrea Bovee, The Channel School
Students complete three days of training in our production space, immersed in a professional workshop environment, learning sculptural skills, costume making and decorative techniques, along with workshop practice and health and safety.
Away from the distractions of school, students really become part of the team and we are always impressed by the maturity and immense creativity that they bring to the task in hand. Students who have attended past workshops have gone on to become part of the Strange Cargo team, or now attend the over 18's Charivari Workshop Weekend.
This workshop model has been a very successful and is now used on a number of other projects.
