Dinosaur Land was an installation/play environment and interactive show for 3-8 year olds at Waterman's Arts Centre in Kew Bridge. The show was created and delivered by Tea Dance for Little People, my roles were designer/maker and workshop facilitator. I designed the environment in consultation with TDLP director Sally-Anne Donaldson who wrote and produced the show, and also designed and delivered a dinosaur hat making activity for participants.
The set utilised some items from the TDLP store made by other designers as well as many items designed and made by me. It featured play areas including a waterfall/oasis with mirror pool and play flowers, a volcano ball-pool, a cave with blackboard walls, a fossil-hunting sand pit and a stepping stone trail.
