Join artist Lily Ash Sakula and be inspired by the Queen's House to create a claymation pageant.

Very few people are born royal, but many have created lineages, courts and symbols of power for themselves: from pearly kings to drag queens, from the artist formerly known as Prince to Queen B.

In this workshop we will explore how people have subverted symbols of royalty and reshaped them in their own image. We will collect our favourite costumes, symbols and poses from the Queen's House, to inspire our royal puppets and animate them into a claymation pageant of majestic gifs. 

Suitable for ages 6 - 13 years.
