Ariel can also work with groups of children and young people from 10 years upwards in creating larger-scale artistic wicker sculptures, as well as incorporating Celtic Graffiti Art Stencilling and poetry in the artwork, to form part of exciting street spectacle and parade work in communities! Such broader creative approaches can work to raise the profile of local events and can also include workshops in drama, circus skills & stiltwalking to engage a wide range of abilities, interest and age groups in local areas, such as Ariel's work as part of Paisley's first Halloween Parade, seen in the video below:
In November 2014, Ariel will also be in Northern Ireland delivering Christmas-themed lantern-making workshops bilingually in Irish as well - images available here after the 29th of November...
