Seed has invited artists Karl Bevis and Avril Silk to join children from Woolavington Primary school to create their own stories, art, poetry and performance, on the themes of home, travel and belonging. Each of the three year groups will have three weekly workshops during the Autumn term 2022 with short form poetry writing, imaginative movement, drawing and crafting, and short story sharing.
The work follows up on issues raised in the theatre Crystals Vardo – an extraordinary journey through Romani history.and the rich tapestry of Gypsy, Romarni and Traveller history and culture. Seed brought the show to Woolavington in June 2022. It is currently on tour and well worth seeing if you can.
Karl Bevis is an artist-educator with over 20 years’ experience. He is working alongside writer and artist Avril Silk on this project. You can find out more about the artists and their work on this project here.
