Other World Arts – Fish and Bird Hats

Other World Arts always come up with wonderful new creations for us every year at WOMAD using a whole host of recyclable materials in all sorts of crazy ways. Join Ian Simons, the creative force behind Other World Arts to make some fish and bird headdresses out of materials you can find around the house.


Crazy Comic Club - Manga Comic Drawing

At WOMAD we never see the workshop tent as full or as quiet as when James Parsons is teaching Manga Comic Skills. Everybody loves it and the level of concentration is incredible.

Here he is with a very special Japanese Chibi cartooning tutorial for you at home. If you get hooked you can join him any day of the week for more online workshops!


The Rig - How to Make a Rain Stick

Some of you may well have enjoyed The Rig’s musical sculptures in the World of
Children at WOMAD. Here, Amy from The Rig shows you how to make a rain stick from bits and pieces you will find around the house. Now you have something to play in your mini procession at home!

You can find lots more makes on The Rig Play Zone on You Tube.


Telling Tales – Awesome Owl Masks

Roderick and Kath are founder members of Telling Tales and always have some imaginative ideas up their sleeve for WOMAD workshops. In this lovely little video direct from their camping holiday, they show you how to make an Awesome Owl mask out of a paper plate. So simple but so effective too!

Colour in the WOMAD site

Download and print out a colouring sheet of our wonderful WOMAD site. Have a go at decorating our iconic WOMAD letters and you can draw yourself in to the festival too! Take a look at our animated pop-up film for inspiration and don’t forget to share your creations with us on social media.
