Description:

Children are invited to participate in a creative arts performance and sewing workshop with Susan Paino, designed especially for the 2010 Summer Reading Program. The workshop begins with an original tale, The Worn-Out Toys Story - and kids in the audience may choose to be actively involved with the production as characters. The performance is followed by a behind the scenes look at how all the props and costumes were created from recycled materials. The second half of the program allows time for kids to do some hands-on sewing and designing activities.

Fee:$250. Discounts available for libraries who book multiple programs during the year.
Group Size:Depends on program space.
Program Length:60 mins.
Facility Requirements:A large open space and two tables.

Comments:Susan Paino works as a costume designer who finds joy in re-using old clothing items to design costumes, taking things apart and re-designing them into new creations - a talent she loves to share with others.
