Vegimation

Vegimation

Combining model making with animation, creative writing, photography and healthy eating, Vegimation made it’s debut as part of the 2016 ‘make it happen’ programme funded by Helena Housing in St Helens. Our workshop began with a huge bag  of fruit and vegetables deposited on a table surrounded by confused looking children aged between 7 and 12.

What’s that?

 Initially the children were very wary of trying something new but soon began eating food they’d never seen before, the workshops quickly ignited into life and the children busied themselves with the task of building their model. Next came the naming and story creation, photography and animation. Over 6 weeks and in 2 locations across St Helens we met over 40 participants who created and ate, from confusion to creation Vegimation had landed.

Following our initial pilots Vegimation is now available as a 3 hour workshop perfect for summer clubs and half term.
