3 DAY WORKSHOP - Participants aged between 12 and 16 years. In collaboration with the Gulbenkian’s ‘bOing!’ Festival, join artist Greg Stobbs for a three-day beast-building workshop.

Learn traditional carnival building techniques to make a large, decorated, willow Beastie sculpture that will then be situated on the ‘bOing!’ site over the festival weekend, for all to see! Help us transform a pile of sticks into something magical…find your inner Beastie! Snacks provided, but participants will need to provide their own lunch.
