About The Event
Welcome to The Menagerie Kids Workshops! We are a Glasgow based duo who have been running design, art and puppet workshops for children, teens and adults for almost 10 years. Our online classes seek to encourage imaginative thinking as well as developing foundational art skills. As we celebrate artists and designers from around the world, let's make art, design things and tell stories!
All workshops are designed for 5 years + although younger children may still enjoy participating and watching along, the workshops are designed to be followed supervised. They are fun for the whole family and we encourage adults to join in!
All support of our Super Market Children’s Workshops work on a ‘Pay it Forward’ basis - your ticket will contribute to subsidised tickets for children across Glasgow, distributed through our Super Market Charity Partners.

WORKSHOP 1 - ADVENT CALENDAR
Video Available from 20th Nov - 5th Dec
Workshop Pack Available to buy for £6 including postage but you can also download the materials yourself if you choose.
With the countdown on until Christmas we invite you to come and make advent calendars with us! In this family workshop we will be looking at artist Milton Avery to inspire us as we learn colour mixing skills to paint the fronts of our calendars in a beautiful way. You will need paint (red, blue, yellow and white), paint brushes, water and a blank advent calendar. Blank advent calendars can be bought in advance or you can make your own from card with downloadable information that we will send out in advance.
WORKSHOP 2 - Hans Christian Andersen Shadown Puppets
Video Available from 20th Nov - 13th December
As the nights draw in we thought this is a perfect time for storytelling and using our imagination as we make our own shadow puppets. In this family lesson we will be learning about the paper art of Hans Christian Andersen as we develop cutting skills and make our own characters.
You will need paper, scissors, sticks and tape. Downloadable supporting sheets for print will be made available.
Zoe, age 9 “It was fun. My favourite things was the character design and portraiture because there was a serious side and a fun side”
Lola, age 10 “It is so fun, you learn a lot, you can use your imagination, it’s epic!”
Nessie, aged 7 “I love drawing in the class because it is quiet”
