Puppet Show Spoilers

These sound bites are just a couple of clips from our Punch & Judy puppet show. We will be performing this show at Milkwood Gallery in Cardiff on Saturday 2 March 2013 as a part of our Once Upon Again exhibition which is currently showing in the gallery.

The voices for the show were kindly performed by Amelia Johnstone and Peter Hathaway. Peter provided the voice for Punch whilst Amelia created voices for other characters in the show including Judy, Joey the Clown, the policeman and the Hangman.

The show is sure to have the audience in fits of laughter as a result of Punch’s anarchic clowning around so don’t miss out.

Puppet Theatre Sketches

Puppet Theatre Building

Our Layla Holzer is busy at work building a theatre for our puppet show performances on Saturday 2 March at Milkwood Gallery. We will be performing a classic Punch & Judy show along with a shadow puppet version of the Jabberwocky.

As a result Layla has developed a theatre design that will allow for both a shadow play performance and a ‘glove puppet’ type performance as well.

The theatre is looking rather magical already. If you’d like to see a sneak peek I suggest you head over to Layla’s Instagram page to track down some pictures of the build in progress.

I hope we’ll see you at Milkwood Gallery though on Saturday 2 March for an evening of puppetry and fairy tales.

Woodcut Fairy Tales

This is another little snapshot of the piece I’m currently working on for the Once Upon Again exhibition which will take place at Milkwood Gallery in spring 2013.

It’s my first time cutting wood to make a block print but I’m enjoying the process so far.

Manifesto exhibition

The inaugural exhibition by the Pack of Wolves entitled ‘Manifesto’ will open at The Sho Gallery in Cardiff on the 4 September 2012.

Those are the voices of my brothers, darling; I love the company of wolves. Look out of the window and you’ll see them.’ – Angela Carter

Manifesto is the first exhibition curated by the Pack of Wolves; a collective of artists and illustrators bound together by a respect for one another’s artistic practice, ambition and limitless imagination.

‘A manifesto is a written public declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer, be it an individual, group, political party or government. It often is political in nature, but may present an individual’s life stance.’

This exhibition entitled ‘Manifesto’ presents the stance of the individuals participating in the Pack of Wolves which when combined will form the basis for the collective manifesto

The exhibition will be consist of thoughtful and enchanting new work by members of the Pack of Wolves including paper cut illustrations and hand embroidered typographic works amongst others.
