We started the session, at the request of the children as usual, with my monster puppet visitor, with whom I improvised responses to their questions Again some of the children had brought in puppets of their own or created puppets from their hands to participate.
Then we returned to continue making the monster heads, this time introducing some wools and other textural materials for hair. Some more parents joined us to assist. Many children began to make additional props – wing pieces, weapons, sleeve pieces, etc, picking up ideas from each other and developing them. Again, there was a lovely happy busy atmosphere in the room, with everyone very engaged and working well. We hadn’t time to look at the shadows but we photographed all the masks, table by table.
