the beautiful paper puppets designed by Kelly Kirkham
and then watching the antics of the Purple Pirate a.k.a.
Mike Harding of Applefun Puppetry. This beautiful venue
provided a wonderful intimate space in which adults and
children can come together to watch puppetry of all kinds.
next show is DREAMS presented by the
Artichoke Heart Collective and as of
going to press is 60% sold. Get your tickets soon.
FOAM & FUR workshop is now underway.
Next is the marionette building workshop - sign up soon.
this workshop participants, over four days, will construct
their own marionette using polymer and air-dry clays.
Concepts of three-dimensional sculptural form will
be taught in making of the head and hands and feet
and fundamental principles of painting will be introduced
in order to bring each character to life. Each participant
will also learn how to string and dress their puppet
and basic marionette manipulation will also be covered.

RED WAGON COLLECTIVE was formed in 2006 in response to our desire
to deepen our artistic, collaborative, and community-engaged
practices through residency projects that would enable us to
develop both intensive and extensive relationships in the Junction
- a rapidly changing neighbourhood in Toronto's west end. We
share a desire to work collaboratively with artists and non-artists
to create work that inspires new conversations; softens boundaries
between groups separated by age, culture, ability, and economic
status; promotes the presence of art in everyday life and contributes
to increasing public engagement in community development. The
work we create with communities is used in producing exhibitions,
public installations, and celebratory performance events.We
are currently working within the walls of the Evangeline Shelter.
Foundry specializes in edition printing, custom art reproduction
projects, and high-end photo-retouching work.
little further afield but worth the walk!
