Over 700 children from local primary schools took part in a day of activities and talks in the wonderful Alexandra Palace, the home of television broadcasting. Dan and Ruth delivered a talk on Foley sound using lots of different objects to create sound effects. Ruth is a professional Foley artist and has worked on shows ranging from Downton Abbey to Peppa Pig! Here is her IMDB page: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0838324/ Dan also demonstrated a musical instrument called a Waterphone that creates spooky horror soon, and a metal slinky that can make laser gun sounds!
1-2 June 2019 we travelled to China to run family sound workshops at Modern Sky’s Strawberry Seeds festival.
Family workshop at the Zabludowicz Collection art gallery in London.
“Thanks so much for running the workshop, it was as huge success; and we had a lot of people!” Antonia (Public Programmes Curator)
We were delighted to be invited back to the United Arab Emirates to run workshops at their annual children’s festival in Sharjah.
Over the 11 day festival we delivered 22 school and family workshops.
