Making together to create a Jellybrella on Saturday
We were thrilled with the Jellybrella creative workshop on last Saturday May 11th which we facilitated at Sprout Arts in Furzedown as part of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe.
The weather was mostly kind and we did most of the day outdoors. Thanks for all the support and to Nikki, David, Jane & Chuck for facilitating.
Lots of people came and many of them worked together – parents and children, friends, siblings, grandparents and grandchildren – as well as others who created solo.
It was fascinating to experience the energy of all these different relationships expressed in making together.
Do you work closely, or independently? Is there a plan or are you both developing the Jellybrella as you go along? Who’s leading? What’s the energy like – thoughtful, stimulated, quiet, noisy?
These photos celebrate making together – and we’ll share some more sets of photos on other aspects: happiness, pride, fun, wellbeing, surprise, working with the re-purposed materials, the Jellybrella’s message & story.
Jellybrella has been fascinating and we have a lot to reflect on in terms of community participation and carrying off bold ideas.
We also have more to share on the adult workshops that led up to this public event on Saturday.
