Information

This year Colour Box is exploding all over the Patrick Studio with a host of free drop-in activities for all ages. Take your pick from Moomin puppets and smartphone projectors, VR experiences and giant zoetropes.

11am – 17.30pm

Pop along to experience:

  • Virtual Reality: Rain or Shine – Experience the brilliant new immersive animated 360 film from award-winning animation production company Nexus. The film follows Ella, a young girl who loves being outside in the sunshine, but of course it can’t be sunny all the time…
  • Moomin Puppets – A chance to make your very own moomin with animator and puppet-maker Joseph Wallace
  • DIY Cinema – Cut. Stick. Project! Artist duo One Five West will be will be on hand to help you make your own smartphone projectors, shadow puppets and cardboard theatres
  • Direct Film Station – Scratch, paint, draw onto celluloid, and see your masterpiece projected with the help of filmmaker and animator Scott Johnston
  • Dato Duo Synth Station – Who said electronica was just for adults? With this easy-to-use new synthesizer, anyone aged 3 and up can knock out a bangin’ tune, and what’s more fun is that it’s designed to be played in pairs

Drop-in and enjoy all of these activities (and more) at the Patrick Studio.
