Mugstock Umbrellyfish


MugStock is a new boutique festival of music, performance, food, drink and extraordinary occurrences, set amid the stunning natural surroundings of Mugdock Country Park, just north of Glasgow. I was asked by the festival director to create a colourful art installation for the site. Mugdock park is very near to Strathblane so we thought it would be great to involve the pupils at Strathblane Primary.

The idea
Inspired by this (spotted in chang mai) and a previous workshop I delivered in the lyceum theatre.

Work with Strathblane Primary to create lots of jellyfish umbrellas (with eyes this time). Tentacles. These umbrellas will be joined together and strung up to create a magical covered space. Great for hiding from sun or rain.
