My Friend Shadow

Karagoz Making Workshop for Children

In this workshop, children between the ages of 7 and 14 are presented with a pleasant and entertaining work based on the molding technique which is the basis of the traditional shadow play art and used in depiction. The workshop will begin by introducing our traditional art in a way that children can understand. Then they will recognize the characters and make sound studies. They will paint sample depiction patterns prepared in order for them to work comfortably in colors appropriate to the traditional clothing of the character. In this way, they will recognize both traditional Ottoman costumes and different accents and cultures in every corner of Anatolia. They will be able to perform with their own voice after they learn the personality and speech style of their characters after attaching sticks behind each character they have completed. In this way, they will be familiar with our traditional shadow art while having the right and qualified time.
