Yesterday I did a workshop together with colleagues from the HAN Teacher Trainer Academy where teachers and student teachers worked on creating a shadow play. The goal of the workshop was to get them to think about how they can use this form of story telling together with their own students. In this post I want to focus on a small part of the workshop: the creation of the figures for the shadow play.
The figures are cut out of sturdy enough cardboard. Before, it was done by hand (with a sharp knife). Yesterday we introduced an additional option: using the vinyl cutter.
