Holmfirth Christmas Parade

Another lovely project  for our children and young people- the Holmfith Christmas parade takes place on 26th November at 4.30 and will be shimmering and glittering with gorgeous icy crowns, Jack Frost masks and wonderful capes depicting wintery scenes.

The children and young people have embraced the opportunity to create sculpted wearables and to represent winter through shape, colour, form, imagery and surface.

Our pre-school children relished painting on the cloaks and needed no direction to explore different ways of applying the paint:

Whilst our Drawing for teenagers group made some fantastic drawings of the Jack Frost masks:

Our 11-16yr olds took a range of approaches to painting their cloaks  abstract, patterned, traditional:

A great project to unleash individual creativity but to also create a wonderful sense of joint purpose and common goals….  Can’t wait to see how the costumes will look when all the children and parents parade together through Holmfirth…look out for our Jack Frosts glowing eyes!
