Last weekend saw the Wonky Paleontology team at the Secret Garden Party. I came along and helped spray the dinosaur and created some dino style Character Cut-Outs as well as helping kids dig up bones out of the sand pit.
The weather was fantastic for the whole weekend, with the majority of the forecast rain bypassing the site. We took the Dino for a walk on the saturday night, roaring our way around the festival and across the front row for Blondie’s performance whilst she sang Heart of Glass and Hanging on the Telephone. We had a massive bop to the gig and then headed to the top of the hill to watch the fireworks, as festie goers serenaded us with the theme to Jurassic Park.
Keep your eyes peeled for more festie appearances from the Wonky Paleontology team. More info will be here – Wonky Paleontology and extra pics too.
A sneak peek at some of the stuff I’ve been up to recently.This giant beast is part of a project that I have become involved in. It is going to be showcased at the Secret Garden Party this year as part of an action camp called “Wonky Paleontology” The sculpture is made of papier mache, cloth and piping and is in pieces. The bones will be buried in to a sand pit and then dug up and put together to make a giant puppet. The project is the brain child of artists at the Crescent Studios in Brighton, Katherine Griffin, Elizabeth Jardine and Carinan Blijdenstein. If you are at SGP or Playgroup festival this year then you may just catch a glimpse of this creature.
