We’re incredibly excited to announce one of this year’s Thought Bubble projects, kindly funded by the wonderful Leeds Inspired.
Influenced by Hayao Miyazaki’s and Studio Ghibli’s brilliant animations such as Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away, the Kodama Woods project will see us build a large-scale light installation, using wood and paper to form of a magical woodland. Attendees will be able to create their own sprite lanterns, which will then form a canopy under which we will hold story-telling sessions during the two-day Thought Bubble convention. Artist Tom Eglington, who made last year’s amazing lamps in Bub’s Lounge, will be helping us with the project. He’s currently hard at work making beautiful things like this for us:
Workshops will be taking place from late September 2014 – Art therapist Alison Herbert will be helping us run the events, and we hope to see as many of you at them as possible!
Leeds Inspired is part of the city’s cultural programme that celebrates arts, sport and heritage events throughout the year. They support culture in the city through the Leeds Inspired website, as well as grants schemes and commissions.
The Leeds Inspired what’s on website brings together the city’s annual highlights alongside independent events and DIY happenings to create an ever changing inspirational cultural calendar. We’re immensely grateful to them for giving us the opportunity to put on these events, and hope some of you will be able to join in the fun with us!
Please get in touch if you would like to be involved in any way. We would love to hear from you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
