Fantastical Beasts 27 – Shadow Puppets of Malaysia & Indonesia with Sisetta Zappone

8th December 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Imagine and create your very own surreal hybrid animal in this fantastically creative workshop!

Join artist, printmaker and London Drawing tutor Sisetta Zappone for little drawing escapism in an adventure around the world and into the cosmos.
Explore animal iconography, learn about medieval bestiary, depictions of animals from different cultures from across the world and allow your drawing to morph into the strange and the imaginative.
Its going to be intriguing, strange and a little bit wild….

This week we will be traveling to Malaysia & Indonesia- and exploring Shadow Theatre!

We will be looking at how to transform our Fantastical Beasts into 3D creations and animate them

We are going to run a special Fantastical Beasts Exhibition in the fabulously atmospheric vaults of the Crypt Gallery under St Pancras New Church in Euston, London
The Exhibition will be the first week of February 2021
We would love to feature your Fantastical Beasts in the show-
Take a look at the incredible Crypt Gallery at St Pancras here

No need to frame anything- we will be creating a show where the beasts are hidden, lurking, flying and emerging all over the gallery –
We would like you to mount your beast- perhaps cut it out and mount on card, or give us permission to do so
Or if you dont want to cut your Beast out- you can submit your beast without any mount- and give use permission just to hang it- its up to you
If you dont want to send us an original drawing- good quality colour or black and white copies work too

We will need your Beast by the 25 January 2021

Thameside Print Studio
