DANDELION CLOCK SHOP
SHADOW ANIMATION/ PUPPETRY/
Dandelion Clock Shop was a children's storytelling & craft workshop company.
Founded by Emily Harwood & Rebekah Paterson.
Starting with the smallest seed of an idea, we want to spread our love of great stories with fun and engaging performances that pop up in unexpected and familiar places. Using interactive storytelling, puppetry, animation and live music we create intricate little worlds brimming with imagination and tall tales of far away lands and tea & cake loving characters.
Each story told comes with a bespoke craft workshop suitable for ages 3+ (and their grown ups).
Check out this lovely blog post from Sian at The Creative Bus Stop about our work and a little interview from me here!
