Workshop with Philip Cooper

Thursday, July 12, 2pm to 5pm,  Free and open the public.

Come help Artist in Residence Philip Cooper put the finishing touches on the puppets that will be used in the community Procession on July 14.  Make headdresses to wear and help paint the life size horse, pinwheels and fish that will make up this amazing show of wind animated sculpture.

Bring natural elements to decorate your headdresses, like feathers, and branches. 

And join us on July 14th for the community, New Orleans style, procession from the Makers Lab, along the rail trail and ending at Hurleyville Arts Centre.  Directly following the parade at 4:00pm, enjoy an outdoor happening directed by Tannis Kowalchuk, and performed by the Streets theater group.  The original theater creation is an all-ages outdoor show featuring stilt walkers, actors, musicians, and special puppet design by Hurleyville Makers Lab artist in residence Philip Cooper.
