My next exciting adventure is going to be in Manchester! I've been selected as an Elevate artist to work with the fabulous Walk the Plank, outdoor arts theatre and pyrotechnic company.
They are based in Salford in Greater Manchester and are making giant carnival puppets for the 10th annual Manchester Day parade that celebrates all things Manchester.. As part of their Elevate artist development programme, I've been selected, along with other emerging artists, to work with them on this project. There are lots of Masterclasses for people of all backgrounds to learn new skills on the programme too. I'm so pleased they picked me to work on the puppets and I'm so looking forward to working with them and visiting Manchester. I've been once before visiting friends and had a lovely time, it's a city with a great vibe, much like Glasgow.
Manchester Day is on 23rd June 2019, so I'll probably be heading down for the few days before that. Lots of photos of my time there to follow!
