In the summer of 2014 I worked at several music and arts festivals including Eden Festival, Bearded Theory Festival, Ravenstonedale Festival and Lancaster Music Festival running creative workshops aimed at children but open to all ages.
For the workshops I ran for the Melodrome stage I created a mask template that fitted in with the intricate, decorative green man theme on the sides of the stage and these could then be cut out, coloured in and adorned with ribbons and lots of glitter. The masks where also good merchandising and advertising for the stage at the festivals.
Another popular workshop I offered was henna workshops. I provided many tubes of henna, examples of designs to inspire, and created a chilled out space for festival goers of all ages to try out using the henna to give themselves or their friends a henna tattoo. This proved to be a very relaxing workshop and it was a nice thing for people to do while they listened to bands playing in the background.
