CREATURAMA WORKSHOPS

During educational workshops artist Anthony James presents some of his incredible masks, models and costumes used in CREATURAMA Exhibitions, theatre, film and television productions. He talks about his work, its design and its construction to delight and inspire both staff and pupils.  Anthony then helps pupils to build their own fabulous creations using household junk and recycled materials. During workshops Anthony stresses the importance of research, design, technology and imagination.


Anthony has worked in education for over twenty five years. He is police checked and can provide references if required.


Individual Workshops and school residencies also available, as are a range of educational resource materials - see resources above


Creating 3D Masks, models and costumes is a very rewarding activity for children. It is a way of Active Learning about many KS2 art, science and history topics.
