Join us for a creative puppet making session inspired by Spike Island’s exhibition, Ofelia Rodríguez: Talking in Dreams.

Create your own collage puppets inspired by Rodríguez’s surrealist use of objects, materials and dream-like narratives. We will explore hands-on making, projection and storytelling to help you bring your creations to life.

This session is for children aged 5-11 years old and their carers. No previous experience in art making is required and all materials are provided.

Dream and Make

Led by artist Laura Phillimore, Dream and Make allows children aged 5–11 years old to try out new techniques and approaches to making art, from drawing and painting to collage, sculpture and animation.
