This project involves the creation of a life-sized puppet horse used as part of our production I Shot the Sheriff. Our learning disabled service users gained experience working with new materials as they created the horse. The performance brought together people in the west London community who were inspired by the achievements and talents of our learning disabled service users. Following the production we hope to offer workshops to other learning disabled people about making and designing and working with life-sized puppets.
We will need volunteers to help put on inclusive workshops for other learning disabled people in the community about making and designing and working with life-sized puppets. Volunteers would need to be ready to support our learning disabled service users as they are facilitated to lead the workshops. We would also welcome offers from other local businesses, groups and organisations who could help us publicise the workshops among their customers/service users. We welcome partnerships with other organisations working with people with learning disabilities who would like to access the workshops. Watch this space for further details to come over the next few months.
