The Trashcatchers’ Carnival takes to the streets in 4 weeks’ time. Lots happening to get ready between now and then. There are workshops in many of the schools building floats, costumes, musical instruments and head pieces. Artists will be travelling between Tooting’s 15 schools on an almost daily basis. The South London Swimming Club have been creating the different elements of their Lido float – lacy waterfalls of blue shimmer, golden suns and shiny lettering. It really is completely amazing what can be created from some coloured plastic bags. There are Carnivalista workshops now happening each weekend – see right for details and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information.
