"How do we work with papmache?" David Mason asked after
having looked at a picture in a book from Denmark. The next day
the employees started to create small puppets out of old newspapers
But puppets does not make a full circus. Though MMCC officially
does not have any animals the next step was to create an elephant
and the head of a horse. Like with everything else it's a question
of making big things in a simple way out of small money.
Soon the sewing-team at Aschiana was involved in making costumes
for the animals and puppets. A concept which is going to be a part
of the workshops all over the country in order to make sure that
the activities can continue when MMCC moves on. Part of the idea
is to teach the children how to create the things themselves - and
to leave it at the child-centers and schools after every workshop.
MMCC horse and elephant will soon be joined by a live dinosaur.
