The Spark Arts festival @The Curve… ‘Hop Island’ Gallery

Yesterday it was all happening at The Curve in Leicester!  

You can be sure, if The Spark Arts are putting on a event, then it’s going to be pretty special, and yesterday was just that.  From the moment the doors opened at The Curve, the whole space was filled with the sound of little feet, giggles and excitement.

I sat, with a team of awesome Spark volunteers, on the mezzanine with my ‘Hop Island’ workshop all ready to go and waited for the the happy noises to reach my part of the building and then all of a sudden…WHOOSH! It happened!  Hop Island suddenly became a very exciting place indeed.

   
   No longer were there just two people trapped on a rather empty looking island.  Now there were volcanoes with magma pumping stations, talking trees, tigers, pirates, play parks, acid flame pits, monsters and princesses in castles.

Hop Island was transformed by the brilliant imaginations of the children and their families in Leicester, and I would like to share with you some of the pictures I took of their wonderful creations.  Enjoy!
