'Your Secret Garden' with Guest Artist PIPPA BAINBRIDGE
Sun. 22 January 2017, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm GMT-08:00
Abbotsford Convent Foundation and Kids’ Own Publishing Present: Your Secret Garden by The Grand Imaginarium with Guest Artist Pippa Bainbridge
Children are invited to let their imaginations run wild at the Abbotsford Convent this Summer, as our stunning gardens are brought to life with award-winning children’s authors and leading artists.
Children will uncover secrets hidden in the garden, chosen to inspire stories for their very own book, created and published on the spot. Children will not only take a copy of their own book home, but will also contribute to a special compilation of stories which will be placed around the Convent, creating a story trail for other children to enjoy when they visit the Convent.
Your Secret Garden sessions are recommended for children aged 5 – 12-years-old. Children must be accompanied by an adult. As we are working outside please bring a hat, drinking water and sunscreen.
Sunday 22 January 2017 – Pippa Bainbridge
"The bees are busy, humming and buzzing. The crickets are restless, creaking and chirping. Your shoes squelch on the wet grass and you turn suddenly as a sprinkler sputters and hisses into life…"
Children will join Pippa Bainbridge – a performance-maker whose children’s theatre productions includes 'Beneath and Beyond' at La Mama – for a guided journey through the Convent garden, listening to and interpreting the sounds around them. These sounds will then be used in new and surprising ways, including a series of games that lead children to create their own sonic textures, rich aural landscapes and sound-driven stories.
Session 1: 10am – 12pm
Session 2: 1 – 3pm
Other sessions as part of the Your Secret Garden series include:
