Sadler’s Wells – Family Weekender



Interactive Installations

In response to the show Arcaladanza, Charlotte Austen and I designed, installed and facilitated a series of interactive installations for the family Sadler’s Wells family weekender 2015, the event brought in over 1000 visitors over the course of the day.

Below are examples of the installations.

Sticky Wall


‘Sticky Wall’ rainbow wall created out of felt with felt shapes, pieces and materials for visitors to create their own shapes.

Wishing Cloud


‘Wishing Cloud’ the 3 x 1 meter cloud beat empty of clouds and at floor level. The children were encouraged to attach a cloud with a wish onto the cloud to help it rise and display the rainbow. The cloud was raised slowly throughout the day.




Knitting Nancy

‘Knitting Nancy’ we 3d printed an enlarged knitting nanacy based on the traditional knitting toy. Nancy was used by the visitors and over 300 meters worth of rope was used throughout the day. Yoga balls were placed into the sculpture and this was used as a seat.


The Stage


‘The Stage’ visitors were encouraged to design costumes for our actors and actresses to join the stage.

Costume Shop


Visitors were also encouraged to create paper costume pieces for themselves. There were a variety of paper templates including a bow tie, a watch, a bracelet and glasses.

Dancing with the Window



Children were encouraged to make dancing shapes and to cut figures out of coloured acetate and fill the window with colour.




similarly to last year Charlotte and I made interactive instillations in response to Snow White. The weekend was a great success with more visitors than the previous year.
