Help Clay and Paper Theatre and Park People create pollinator-themed art on Sundays in May & June. The awesome creations you make will be part of a public parade and festival on Sunday, June 18 in Bartlett Parkette to mark the start of pollinator week. The festival celebrates the Bee Line on the Green Line—a project by Park People, local residents, and the City of Toronto to create new pollinator gardens along this urban hydro corridor.

Be part of the parade making process by helping to fabricate the pollinator puppets, images, and costumes that will be featured in the Bee Line festival. Like to perform? Clay and Paper Theatre will also offer performance participation opportunities, such as a puppeteering or stilt walking.

The Sunday workshops are open 11am to 5pm on a drop-in basis on the following dates:

Sunday workshops will offer a variety of activities, led and coached by Clay and Paper Theatre associate artists. Come by and discover:

Stay as long as you like and bring friends and family. Activities are geared for a wide range of maturity in skills, but with a suggested range of 10 years and older. Children MUST be accompanied and teamed with an adult.


More About Clay and Paper Theatre

Now in its 23nd season, Clay & Paper Theatre is Toronto’s only theatre company that works exclusively in public space. This is theatre of exaggeration, of giant puppetry, of satire and wit gone awry. This is a little theatre company asking big questions with humour and irreverence. Clay & Paper Theatre produces plays, pageants and parades with the community, grounded in the idea that performance in public space is an act of cultural transformation. Our practice of building, rehearsing, and performing in full public view is an attempt on our part to “bring back the commons,” reunite art with the daily life of the community, and to make art accessible to all.

Clay and Paper Theatre gratefully acknowledges support from the Ontario Arts Council, the Toronto Arts Council, the Toronto Arts Foundation, The City of Toronto, Parks & Recreation, Miziwe Biik Aboriginal Employment & Training and SERVICE Canada.
