Shadow Studio workshops focus on the magic of photography and use storytelling to take you through the early moments of cinema right up to modern media today.

By creating simple desktop shadow theatres made out of cardboard, participants learn the basics of shadow puppetry and then get the opportunity to perform live mini-theatre pieces at the end of the workshop.

Beginning with handmade cardboard cut-outs, we create small-scale shadow productions. Storytelling, imagination and the simplest possible materials are key ingredients. We provide small lamps to create shadow effects and use card to create shapes, backdrops and characters. We also use light filters and different materials like net and feathers to experiment with depth and textures, and look for novel ways to narrate or create sound effects.
