Making a Dream World by Tamara MacArthur

Recommended for ages 8–12

What you will need:

  • A small area of clear wall with some space in front of it, to set up your filming device
  • Phone/ tablet/ laptop
  • Paper (about 20 sheets)
  • Card (cereal boxes are perfect!)
  • Colourful drawing pencils/ pens/ pastels
  • Shiny scraps (kitchen foil/ sweet wrappers etc.)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Blue tack
  • Tape

Alongside the piece It’s All Over But the Dreaming presented as part of our August offering, artist Tamara MacArthur has created a special DIY Art activity which invites you to imagine your own dream world, and turn it into a paper theatre set at home. You can find costumes for your characters using everyday things from around the house. Then, using a filming device like a phone or laptop, you can create your own show.

Watch your magical dream world become a reality!
